“The 1769 Taskin harpischord, from Edinburgh University's Russell Collection, is a gem, resonant and entrancing. Unequal temperament pushes some intonation to its intriguing limit.” - BBC Music “If you are interested in French harpsichord music you should consider this disc… The main reason is the harpsichord, a splendid original instrument of 1769 by Pascal Taskin… It has a very beautiful sound, not as aggressive as some French harpsichords. This could also be due to the miking which is not too direct. John Kitchen is a sensitive performer… I have greatly enjoyed this disc.” - MusicWeb International For this instalment of John Kitchen’s ongoing project to record the instruments of the world-famous Roger Mirrey keyboard instrument collection the keyboardist focuses his attention on a 1769 Taskin harpsichord, considered by aficionados to be the world’s most famous harpsichord. Its opulent lushness is captured in this recording of works from Couperin, Duphly, Forqueray and Rameau.

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!
