"The performances by Les Ambassadeurs are admirable. The players show impressive technical skills. The players of the natural horns deserve special mention as they greatly contribute to this highly compelling recording. The character of the repertoire, the standard of the performances fully merit Recording of the Month."
- MusicWeb International

Les Ambassadeurs launch a series of albums devoted to the repertory of the Dresdner Hofkapelle at the time of Bach, with the aim of rediscovering the splendid sound of an ensemble considered the finest orchestra in the world in its time. On this recording, Les Ambassadeurs pursue a mission of rediscovery: they bring back to life these still-asleep masterpieces, showcasing a true and deep understanding of what musical philosophy brought the Dresden Hofkapelle to the highest level of execution. Although the concertos assembled here by Les Ambassadeurs bear no explicit dedication, there can be little doubt that they were expressly written for the Dresden orchestra: they feature the instrumentation typical of the court Kapelle, with its horns and oboes vying for prominence with the violin.

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!
