Placed this in my queue.

Can I ask you, how is the search engine for Qobuz?

Are they still limited in connectivity regard?

Ed, I don't know if I understand you correctly.
I find the search engine excellent.
I use it more than the one in Roon, when I'm looking for a specific title.
Roon is better in offering suggestions, although Qobuz is very in that aspect as well.

Thank you, Bart you answered me.
I recently went to Amazon and the quality is superb.
The search engine is awful, the connectivity options less than desirable and the fair interfacing and music organization dismal.

I know I rejected Qobuz because it's connectivity was not desirable for me.

I wish a service would work functionally like Spofify, have the search engine of Spotify, the features of Spotify but devoted to classical and with Amazon quality.

I have no complaints regarding the sound.
And I do like the fact that Qobuz offers us the booklets.

Johann Sebastian Bach - The Sonatas for Violin and Cembalo obbligato Vol. 1
Ryo Terakado, violin
Fabio Bonizzoni, harpsichord
Qobuz 24/96




We found this superb.

Johann Sebastian Bach developed a new style, cembalo obbligato, where the right hand of the keyboard plays as a melody instrument and is given the same importance as the violin, flute or other solo instrument. His sonatas for melody instrument and keyboard instrument include works for flute, violin, and viola da gamba. It seems that the "obbligato style" interested him more than the traditional continuo role for the keyboard. As for the violin, there are two sonatas written with basso continuo and six with harpsichord obbligato. Among these works, the six sonatas in particular were conceived as a set, with a consistent style and a well-considered key distribution. This set is one of the highlights in the catalog of Bach’s chamber music. Bach’s son Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach writes to Bach’s first biographer, Johann Nikolaus Forkel, in 1774: “The 6 clavier [and violin] trios... are amongst the best works of my dearly beloved father. Even now they sound very good and give me many delights, regardless of the fact that they are over fifty years old”.

The key distribution is somewhat symmetric and this suggests that Bach intended these as a set of pieces for violin, comparable to his unaccompanied sonatas and partitas for violin. Additionally, with the exception of Sonata No. 6, this set of works all follow the church sonata style. © Challenge Records
