"... a fine new set of Bach’s Orchestral Suites ... the rewards are glorious, with Egarr at the harpsichord driving the delightfully clean and springy rhythms, every detail sharply defined, each separate timbre there for us to enjoy. Highly recommended.”

"Album of the Week ... a sharp, sparkling and unencumbered reading ... (an) excellent new recording under the baton of Richard Egarr ... (his) approach allows each instrument to be heard and shine through and for the brilliance of Bach's writing to be exposed and enjoyed afresh."
- Classic FM

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
