"J. S. Bach’s Cello Suites are somehow hypnotic. An austere work, an instrument, a performer, a single voice and yet we begin to listen to them and are introduced into a path which inevitably leads us inwards, and makes us aware of our absolute solitude facing the universe and the unknown. When we approach a work of such dimensions, turn out to be hopelessly small, aware of the responsibility implied by being alone before a musical monument of almost unrivalled characteristics. The work places you in front of the mirror, with no frills to hide your true vulnerability as an artist. I had to be honest and consistent with my journey. I knew I could not offer something definitive, but I had to capture the photograph of a moment, an instant of my journey as a musician in the continuous search for something that, due to its greatness, is infinite. The greatness of this music is manifested through a message of profound humanism, which opens our minds to the beautiful, the intangible, and the elevated. Bach’s suites are introspective, true, but when they end, one is certain of having heard a personal and intimate message, full of emotion, intelligence, harmony and respect for Life. The Cistercian Collegiate Church of Zenarruza (14th century) is an enclave where the Jacobean route along the coast of the The Way of Saint James passes through. The constant influx of pilgrims made it almost compulsory, for the scheduled times of these recording sessions, to move to the quiet of the night, when everyone was resting. Surely, that condition has left its mark on this version. The silence, the acoustics of the church, the twilight lighting, the mysterious hours of the morning…, without doubt it was a magical experience." - Asier Polo

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!
