Award-winning baroque violinist Alana Youssefian and her ensemble Le Bien-Aimé release this bold album, showcasing music of the brilliant but little-known French violinist and composer Louis-Gabriel Guillemain. His precociousness noted at an early age, Guillemain went on to serve in the court of King Louis XV. His symphonies are as uplifting and innovative as his sonatas are astonishingly virtuosic. While his compositions tested the limits of his contemporaries, his lasting legacy may have been his ability to bridge the baroque and classical styles, seamlessly adapting to shifting tastes in music and art of his time.

Alana rises to the challenges of Guillemain’s technical demands with ease. The young, New York-based violinist is a sought-after soloist for baroque, classical, and romantic repertoire; she has been honoured with the top prize in The Juilliard School’s Historical Performance Concerto Competition and a coveted fellowship by The English Concert in America.

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!
