Mozart married Constanze Weber in 1782, and it is thanks to her diligent curation of ‘these marvellous relics’ that we have these rarely heard fragments including fugues which reveal the influence of Bach and demonstrate Mozart’s agility with sophisticated contrapuntal techniques. The more substantial Rondos have gained popularity with their memorable themes and musical depth, while forays into Baroque style can be heard in the unfinished Suite. These, the improvisational Fantasias and a mocking parody of a Funeral March all highlight neglected facets of Mozart’s oeuvre.

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 DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

DSD and 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.
