Duration: 01:04:43
Recorded: Acoustic Recording, Brooklyn, NY, Januery 10th 2015

Along with guitarists such as Lage Lund, Peter Bernstein and his fellow countryman Gilad Hekselman, Yotam Silberstein represents one of the inspiring and influential forces of jazz, and guitar, in NYC and around the world. Following up four recordings as a leader and dozens of recordings as a sideman, Silberstein is proud and happy to present his new recording, The Village, to the world. It is by far his finest work, in that Silberstein was able to bring together many influences that are meaningful to him, including music from the Middle East, Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Uruguay and of course jazz and blues, all fully absorbed and forged into a unique and coherent voice. For the recording of The Village Silberstein surrounded himself with close friends, Aaron Goldberg (piano), Reuben Rogers (bass) and Gregory Hutchinson (drums), who collectively could only be described as a world-class, dream-team rhythm section, allowing the grandeur of the guitarist’s mastery to shine through unadulterated.

Wim Van Hasselt - Chant d'Automne (2016) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Сomposer: Karl Amadeus Hartmann (1905-1963), Wilhelm von Grunelius (b.1942), Paul Hindemith (1895-1963), Iván Fischer (b.1951)
Artist: Wim Van Hasselt
Title: Chant d'Automne
Genre: Classical
Label: © Channel Classics Records B.V.
Release Date: 2016
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: nativeDSDmusic
Duration: 00:53:50
Recorded: MCO studio 1, Hilversum, October 2015 (Hartmann, Hindemith); BMC studio, Budapest, August 2015 (Grunelius, Fischer)

The title of this album, featuring two world premieres (Grunelius and Fischer), is taken from the composition by the German pianist and composer Wilhelm von Grunelius. The inspiration for his work for flugelhorn, timpani and strings came from the poem ‘Chant d’automne’ by the French poet and art critic Charles Pierre Baudelaire (1821-1867). The use of texts is a recurring theme in this colourful programme of music for the trumpet in a variety of combinations. At the end of the final movement of his Sonata for trumpet and piano, ‘Trauermusik’, Paul Hindemith incorporates Bach’s chorale ‘Alle Menschen mussen sterben’ (BWV 634). In his Eine Deutsch-Jiddische Kantate, Iván Fischer employs texts by Avrom Sutzkever, Rainer Maria Rilke, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and others. The recording is also of particular value in view of the fact that the two world premieres of music by Grunelius and Fischer are performed by the Budapest Festival Orchestra under Iván Fischer himself, while he also conducts his own Eine Deutsch-Jiddische Kantate, with his daughter Nora Fischer as soprano soloist.

Già nel luglio scorso Enrico Dindo e i suoi Solisti pavesi conquistavano il nostro titolo di “disco del mese” con una ottima interpretazione haydniana. Oggi si ripresentano con un altro stupendo CD dedicato ai concerti per violoncello del prete rosso. Qui le note di Vivaldi assumono il colore caldo e profondo che possiamo ritrovare solo nel centenario legno di noce di alcuni splendidi mobili coevi o nelle casse armoniche dei più bei violini e violoncelli di Antonio Stradivari.
E’ come dire un’aria, una atmosfera di velluto che si respirava allora nelle calli veneziane e che Vivaldi sapeva distillare ed infondere in alcune sue composizioni, come questi concerti per violoncello, capaci di rapirti e di trasportarti nel tempo e nello spazio per farti assaporare proprio quell’aria, quella atmosfera delle quali le allieve della Pietà furono le prime vettrici.
Ma il tempo non si è fermato la’: Vivaldi ne ha consegnato il segreto a quanti volessero leggerlo e viverlo, come oggi nuovamente succede a Enrico Dindo e ai suoi sodali.
La magia torna allora a compiersi ed e’ una specie di teofania, dove il genio e il cuore, il talento e la determinazione sono gli elementi alchemici capaci di rendere l’ascoltatore a sua volta interprete e ambasciatore di un messaggio, di una parola capaci di viaggiare nei secoli, restando tuttavia intatti e fedeli a se stessi.
Questo è quello che ho letto nell’ascolto di questo CD e questo è quello che trasmetto a quanti avranno avuto la pazienza di seguirmi fin qui e si fideranno del mio consiglio di infilare nel lettore questo disco è poi di arrendersi a questa musica…--Angelo Formenti

VA - Proprius Records Audiophile Best (2016) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD128/5.64MHz

In an advertisement for Proprius some years ago, Proprius founder Jacob Boëthius wrote: “A small record company can’t afford to put out bad discs. And you, the music lover, must be confident that what you buy is good”. He was aware that, in the final analysis, quality is what counts with regard to clients, record buyers, artists and sound engineers. This statement is mirrored totally in the 2xHD philosophy.
Proprius Records has always produced some of the most lifelike and incredibly realistic-sounding recordings available; from the mid-seventies on, it became pretty obvious to audiophiles that just about everything released by the label was a treasured commodity. With every recent advance in technology over the last couple of decades, these most highly regarded and sought-after recordings have been rereleased with regularity; most everyone out there has probably gladly bought them several times over in several different formats.
Now remastered in the optimum resolution from the original analog tapes - using the 2xHD proprietary system - the two audiophile labels, Proprius and 2xHD share an incomparable desire to reproduce and present the highest quality and most emotional listening experience.

VA - Chesky 30th Anniversary Collection: Complete Set (1986-2016) (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Various
Title: Chesky 30th Anniversary Collection: Complete Set (1986-2016)
Genre: Demo
Label: © Chesky Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 06:26:07


The Complete Chesky Records 30th Anniversary Collection :: Right from the start Chesky Records had a sound. David Chesky set out to make “aural photographs” of each session, capturing as much of the sound of being there as the technology allowed, continually pushing it forward. Every note of every session was recorded “live,” there were no overdubs, no fixing it in the mix. What went down at the session, with some of the world’s greatest musicians, was in the CD, LP, or later on, high-resolution digital download.
Chesky mostly recorded in great sounding acoustic spaces, namely churches and concert halls, with the earliest sessions conducted in the legendary, and sorely missed, RCA/BMG studios in midtown Manhattan.
Every session presented unique challenges, but David Chesky and his engineers, first Bob Katz, then Miguel Kertsman, Barry Wolifson, and for the last decade or so, Nicholas Prout, continued to advance the state of the recording art. We hope you enjoy the music as much as we did recording it! --Steve Guttenberg

Baden Powell, Barney Kessel, Jim Hall, Buddy Guy, Elmer Snowden - Berlin Festival Guitar Workshop (1968/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Artist: Baden Powell, Barney Kessel, Jim Hall, Buddy Guy, Elmer Snowden
Title: Berlin Festival Guitar Workshop
Genre: Jazz, Blues, Guitar Jazz, Bossa Nova
Label: © MPS - Musik Produktion Schwarzwald | Edel Germany GmbH
Release Date: 1968/2015

Recorded: November 5th 1967 at the "Philharmonie", Berlin


For almost half a century, the Brazilian born guitar player Baden Powell has been one of the key musicians among his country’s jazz scene. However, Powell’s work demonstrates a mastery of many classical guitar styles, from the South American tradition of flamenco to interpretations of the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Nevertheless, on the whole Powell built his reputation as an innovator of bossa nova or the marriage of Brazilian sambas and jazz, often aided by the poet and lyricist Vinicius de Moraes. Although his popularity in the United States has never truly expanded beyond jazz and guitar aficionados, Powell’s name has been virtually a household word in Europe from the early 1960s, when he relocated to that continent for several decades.
