Antoine Tamestit and his artistic partner Masato Suzuki, a soloist in the famous Bach Collegium Japan, have immersed themselves in Bach's three sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord in order to give a sublime interpretation of them on the viola – both instruments use the same alto clef, even if the projection of the sound is entirely different. So this is no transcription, but leaves the artists in total freedom to rediscover with delight these all too rarely played masterpieces! Antoine Tamestit et son complice Masato Suzuki, soliste du célèbre Bach Collegium Japan, se sont immergés dans les trois sonates pour viole et clavecin de Bach pour en donner une interprétation sublimée à l'alto – les deux instruments utilisent la même clé d'ut 3e même si la projection du son est tout autre. Point de transcription donc, mais un champ libre et ouvert permettant de redécouvrir avec délectation ces chefs-d'œuvre trop rarement joués ! Antoine Tamestit und sein Gefährte Masato Suzuki, Solist des renommierten Bach Collegium Japan, haben sich in die drei Sonaten für Bratsche und Cembalo von J.S. Bach vertieft, und herausgekommen ist eine überaus erlesene Interpretation. Die Partien der Instrumente sind beide im Alt-Schlüssel notiert, auch wenn ihre Klangeigenschaften vollkommen unterschiedlich sind. Der Weg ist frei für eine wonnevolle Wiederentdeckung dieser allzu selten gespielten Meisterwerke!

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!
