Digital Booklet
“Julia Brown once again proves a very reliable interpreter, sensitive to the various styles and influences on Wilhelm Friedermann’s music while doing more than justice to its often virtuosic demands. She and Naxos are doing sterling service in making of the composer’s keyboard music easily available.” - Noel O’Regan, Early Music Review “The acoustic is close and helpful, that of the AGR Performing Arts Center in Eugene, Oregon. The harpsichord fairly sparkles – yet to a mellow, genuine effect.” - Mark Sealey, ClassicalNet Known as J.S. Bach's "difficult" eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann was a supremely talented organist and composer who produced innovative works that straddled the Baroque and Classical eras. This release from keyboardist Julia Brown—the fifth in an ongoing series—draws together six sonatas from throughout Bach's career that glow with ingenuity, all performed on a 1986 harpsichord by Richard Kingston.

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!
