Acclaimed Italian keyboardist Simone Stella is certainly one of the best young musicians today. On this Handel recording, the first volume of two, he reveals a character that is respectful, accurate and highly musical; in a word, a mature performance. The instrument on which he plays is a brand new harpsichord based on the model of historical Flemish harpsichord by Johannes Ruckers. Critics have praised the audio engineering of this production, singling out its enthusiastically brilliant and weighted sound.

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!
