Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    70:16
On his first solo harpsichord recording in five years, virtuoso Baroque keyboardist Rinaldo Alessandrini presents this very personal selection of preludes and fugues by J.S. Bach. These short works are not taken from The Well-Tempered Clavier; rather, Alessandrini connects them through their key and their spirit in order to build an innovative and unique recital. The maestro shines a passionate, relevant and delicate new light on Bach's music.

"This recording seeks to offer a coherent collection of compositions, unheard of at the time, that differ in both style and period: isolated preludes, brought together in small didactic collections with equally-isolated fugues, that were composed without the introduction that usually preceded them. We have coupled 'preludes and fugues' according to their tonality and assembled them using contrasting criteria."
- Rinaldo Alessandrini

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!
