The Lute Suites of Bach are a contentious subject – there are many differing opinions and accounts as to what extent they were originally composed for a plucked instrument. Each suite hails from a different period in Bach's career, from youth to middle-age to maturity. For this recording Franz Halász has transcribed two of the suites himself, with the other two being arranged by Ansgar Krause. For practical reasons, the G minor and C minor suites are typical transposed for guitar, but this recording presents all four works in their original keys for the first time on guitar.

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!
