"... has it all: novelty, familiarity, sensuousness, audacity, musical authority and a beautiful sound ... stunning!"
- Gramophone

"... a combination of a finely analytical mind and a poet of the harpsichord ... with fine sound, a generous CD length, a sweet but resonant copy of a 1749 Goujon harpsichord ... this album is definitely a winner."
- Fanfare

"Sophie Yates plays a powerful sounding harpsichord and finds opportunities to display its full musical resources in this consistently marvellous music. She tackles the big virtuoso moments head on and even manages to fit in a few roulades of her own ..."
- Early Music Review

Award-winning harpsichordist Sophie Yates presents her second volume devoted to Rameau, including the Nouvelles suites de pièces de clavecin which display some of his extremely forward-looking ideas on harmony and dissonance. Yates also performs the Cinq pièces pour clavecin seul, solo versions of pieces originally intended for a trio of violin or flute, viol and harpsichord playing equal parts. Rameau himself said that the works lost nothing when played on the harpsichord alone, as evidenced on this recording.

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!
