Uzbekistan-born pianist Eldar Nebolsin takes centre stage on this Tchaikovsky programme featuring the Piano Concerto No. 2, performed here in the composer’s original version, full of life-enhancing character and emotion. Also included on this album is Tchaikovsky's rarely presented but beautiful Concert Fantasia; both works allowing unique interaction between soloist and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra led by Michael Stern.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DSD 5.6mHz using the Merging Horus/Hapi In and the dCS Vivaldi Clock.  All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable. 

Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz and DSD5.6mHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock  

2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme. 

 


Reviews

"... a real winner, not just for Nebolsin’s playing, but because of the addition of the totally overlooked Concert Fantasia."
