Classical performance on SACD

Violinist Augustin Dumay is accompanied by pianist Maria Joao Pires for this audiophile quality recording of sonatas by Mozart, Franck & Brahms.

The reissue of classical music masterpieces by Esoteric has attracted a lot of attention, both for its uncompromising commitment to recreating the original master sound, and for using hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) technology to improve sound quality. This series marks the first Hybrid SACD release of historical recording selections that have been mainstays of the catalog since their initial release.

Technical: The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master. Esoteric's flag ship D/A converters, model D-01VU, Rubidium master clock generator model Grandioso G1 and Escoteric Mexcel interconnect cables and power cords, were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master.

Producer: Motoaki Ohmachi (Esoteric Company)
Mastering Engineering: Kazuie Sugimoto (JVC Mastering Center Daikanyama Studio)
