Called ‘Ouvertüren’ in Germany, because they began with a large-scale overture à la française, Bach's Suites for orchestra offer a unique synthesis of the French and the Italian styles. The Leipzig Cantor did not content himself with a mere set of amiable dances for his ‘Collegium Musicum’: he revived the genre in his own manner, accenting the contrasts, refining the orchestration, and introducing a hitherto unknown contrapuntal element. Two centuries later, these admirable orchestral works continue to represent an indispensable treasure of the Baroque.

Dénommées “ouvertures” en Allemagne parce qu'elles débutaient par une ouverture à la française de grande ampleur, les suites pour orchestre de Bach offrent une synthèse unique entre style français et style italien. Le cantor de Leipzig ne se contente pas d'aligner quelques danses aimables pour son “Collegium musicum” : il restaure le genre à sa manière, accentue les contrastes, affine l'instrumentation, apporte une dimension contrapuntique jusque-là inexistante. Deux siècles plus tard, ces admirables pièces d'orchestre font toujours partie des must de l'âge baroque.

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!
