"... classic when it came out and remains so to this date." - The Telegraph "Fournier’s Apollonian performances ... are wonderfully felt, wonderfully played and have a matchless amplitude and beauty of tone. With his meditative yet confident approach, the French cellist opens up an emotional realm mere mortals have the good fortune to inhabit only on very rare occasions ... the recording is gorgeous." - The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection "... (Fournier) could be brilliant in execution: his technique was second to none, as he proves throughout this set, profound in utterance, aristocratic in poise and wonderfully coherent in his understanding of Bach’s articulation and phrases ... above all, his Bach playing is crowned with an eloquence, a lyricism and a grasp of the music’s formal and stylistic content which will not easily be matched. Fine recorded sound and strongly commended on virtually all counts." - Gramophone These vintage performances, recorded by French cellist Pierre Fournier in December 1960, are still considered by many critics as the reference versions of these Bach suites for solo cello, lavishly praised over the years for both the interpretations and the quality of the recording.

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!
