"... the ideal place to start one’s exploration of Sweelinck’s harpsichord music ... the music comes through with all its brilliance and structural complexity intact, high praise indeed for any performer ... the recorded sound leaves nothing to be desired. Urgently recommended."
- Fanfare

This debut album from Romanian harpsichord virtuoso Alina Rotaru, nominated for an ICMA in 2011, is a brilliantly virtuosic but also very personal approach to the music of great Flemish composer Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. Rotaru aims not to present Sweelinck’s harpsichord repertoire in its completeness here, but rather to paint an picture of the reality of life of the judicious and cosmopolitan Flemish organ and harpsichord player.

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!
