"... (Vinikour) gets superb engineering ... the sonics envelop Vinikour’s harpsichord ... a warm, ample and resonant ambience, with a special ring to sustained bass notes and clarity in all registers ... a serious and major achievement by a serious and major artist."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Vinikour's performances are so buoyant, glistening or noble that you'll likely find yourself glued to your speakers (or headphones). And if you're accustomed to hearing the harpsichord at some distance in a concert hall, be prepared to listen as if you're standing next to the keyboard ..."
- Gramophone

Bach's six Harpsichord Partitas, presented on this acclaimed recording by Jory Vinikour, are considered among the greatest and most inspired keyboard works ever written. Although they are the first pieces he published, they represent Bach's genius at the height of his maturity, matched only by the Goldberg Variations. Each of the partitas is a microcosm, from the poetic and pastoral to the epic and tragic, with Bach showing himself to be playful, profound, meditative, theatrical and the greatest composer of counterpoint of all time. Vinikour plays a stunning copy of a North German instrument from Bach's time, rich and expressive but also clear and incisive.

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!
