"Rebecca Maurer delivers fine performances. D'Anglebert's transcriptions come off very well, with good attention to their dramatic origin. Louis Couperin's Passacaille is one of the highlights."
- MusicWeb International

Harpsichordist Rebecca Maurer weaves pieces from the most brilliant era of the harpsichord to form a musical tapestry full of allusions and cross references. The works presented on this ICMA nominated album date back to the time of the Sun King, Louis XIV. She performs this repertoire on a historical Ruckers harpsichord, strengthening the magic even more: the result is poetic music in a magnificent garment, played with perfect timing and an extraordinary sense of tonal colour and sweeping lines.

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!
