"... Kempf’s piano is the sweetest sounding Steinway D piano I’ve ever heard and you will never hear one more perfectly in regulation or tune, which is why I always give credit in my reviews to Kempf’s technician ... I can’t imagine the piano sounding any better than this, a tribute to BIS’s technical standards which are among the very highest in the industry."
- MusicWeb International

After a series of highly praised recordings of music by Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev, British pianist Freddy Kempf turns to the music of earlier times. The Partitas he presents on this 2006 release may be seen as a summation of Bach’s achievements in the genre of instrumental suites. His use of different textures, his increasingly frequent recourse to harmony and to gallant melodies rather than the imitative counterpoint that had formerly held sway, the great virtuosity he requires and, even more importantly, the profundity he achieves make these works not only the apex but also the logical conclusion of this tradition of transforming a suite of dances into great art.

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!
