The infinitely inspirational power of Bach’s music will be heard again on Ólafsson’s newest recording, Bach Reworks Pt 2. Following up on Pt. 1, the album brings together atmospheric reworkings of music by composers such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Skuli Sverrisson and Christian Badzura – reimaginings that artfully defragment the creations of Bach. “Everything is there in Johann Sebastian’s music: architectural perfection and profound emotion,” says Ólafsson. In his hands, the universe that is Bach shines with new light.

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!
