Trauffer, eigentlich Marc A. Trauffer (*1979 in Brienz), ist ein Schweizer Mundart-Popsänger aus dem Berner Oberland. Bekannt wurde Trauffer als Sänger der Berner Band Airbäg, die zwischen 1997 und 2005 vier Chartalben vorweisen konnte. Die Band fiel auseinander und nach einem privaten Rückschlag durch das Scheitern seiner Ehe dauerte es bis 2008, bis er mit seinem Debütalbum Pallanza seine Solokarriere startete. Benannt ist es nach dem Ort Pallanza im italienischen Piemont, wohin er sich während seiner privaten Krise zurückgezogen hatte.
Mit den Nachfolger-Alben Dr Heimat z'lieb (2010) und Fischer & Jäger (2013) konnte er an die früheren Banderfolge anknüpfen. Das Abum Fischer&Jäger erreichte Goldstatus. 2014 folgte dann Alpentainer, welches mit Platin ausgezeichnet wurde.
2009 übernimmt Marc Trauffer zudem die Holzspielwarenfabrik Trauffer seiner Eltern und führt sie seither als Inhaber. Gleichzeitig engagierte er sich bis Mitte 2014 im Gemeinderat seiner Heimatgemeinde Hofstetten und bis Anfang 2015 als Vizepräsident vom Freilichtmuseum Ballenberg.

Till Bronner - The Good Life (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Till Brönner
Title: The Good Life
Genre: Jazz, Standards, Straight-Ahead Jazz, Trumpet Jazz, Modern Jazz, Vocal Jazz
Label: © Sony Masterworks
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 01:00:04
Recorded: East West Studio 2, Hollywood, USA


Sony Music Masterworks releases The Good Life – the debut album from renowned German jazz trumpeter, Till Brönner. Featuring bassist John Clayton, guitarist Anthony Wilson and pianist Larry Goldings. Recorded at the former Ocean Way Studios in LA, the very same place that Sinatra recorded “My Way,” The Good Life revisits a selection of standards, all of which have made history through their vocal interpretations. Brönner’s aim throughout was to create a specific atmosphere-a sunnier, more lighthearted groove; easygoing but thoughtful, gentle but never superficial. The album includes new arrangements of works made famous by Frank Sinatra (‘In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning’), Billie Holiday (‘I’ll Be Seeing You’), and Nat King Cole (“Sweet Lorraine”). Brönner has produced many of his own albums, but on this occasion he made the conscious decision to hand over the reins to legendary Dutch producer, Ruud Jacobs. As Brönner likes to put it, “constantly looking at your own reflection can get a bit wearing after a while.”
Since recording his first album in 1994, Generations of Jazz, Brönner has steered his career through a series of different phases, including making a name for himself as a producer through his work with artists such as Hildegard Knef and Thomas Quasthoff, as well as, very significantly, discovering his own singing voice. Up until now Brönner has been seen as a trumpeter who occasionally sang and now he will demonstrate his new found talent across an entire album of popular jazz hits – including two originals.
Till Brönner can rightly be regarded as Germany’s most successful jazz musician, but his fame has spread far beyond the National and even the European scene. This year he was invited to participate at International Jazz Day at the White House, playing alongside such legends as Ray Brown, Dave Brubeck and James Moody. Brönner has always walked his own path, evoking thought and finding ways in which to challenge the greater jazz community as a whole. He continues to push those preconceived notions of what a jazz musician should be, showcasing his clear vision and determination throughout his longstanding career.

The Doors - The Doors (1967/2012) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: The Doors
Title: The Doors
Genre: Rock, Hard Rock, Proto-Punk, Psychedelic/Garage, Rock & Roll, AM Pop
Label: © Elektra Entertainment Group/Analogue Productions XAPP74007D64
Release Date: 1967/2012
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Duration: 00:44:40
Recorded: August 24–31, 1966, Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood, California
Mastered by Doug Sax using an all-tube system. Overseen by Bruce Botnick, The Doors producer/engineer. DSD files created from the Analogue Productions SACD cutting master by Gus Skinas.


The Doors self-titled 1967 release famously contains some incorrect speed and pitch issues. While there have been "corrected" versions made, in the interests of being historically accurate, this Analogue Productions reissue was cut without speed or pitch correction.
One of rock music’s most famous debuts, The Doors self-titled 1967 smash is legend. And now it becomes the kick-off for a positively stunning reissue series from Analogue Productions!
The Doors was born after Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek — who’d met at UCLA’s film school — met again, unexpectedly, on the beach in Venice, CA, during the summer of 1965. Although he’d never intended to be a singer, Morrison was invited to join Manzarek’s group Rick and the Ravens on the strength of his poetry. The group later changed its moniker, taking their name from Aldous Huxley’s psychotropic monograph "The Doors of Perception." The band signed to Elektra Records following a now-legendary gig at the Whisky-a-Go-Go on the Sunset Strip.
The Doors’ arrival on the rock scene produced a string of hit singles and albums destined to become clasics. Belting out a standard like “Back Door Man” or talk-singing such originals as “The Crystal Ship,” and “I Looked at You,” one reviewer wrote that leather-clad frontman Morrison exuded “both sensuality and menace.”
The Doors reached Billboard’s No. 2 slot and delivered the No. 1 signature smash “Light My Fire” plus “Break On Through,” “The Crystal Ship,” and “The End.”

The Doors - Waiting For The Sun (1968/2012) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

Artist: The Doors
Title: Waiting For The Sun
Genre: Rock, Hard Rock, Proto-Punk, Psychedelic/Garage, Rock & Roll, AM Pop
Label: © Elektra Entertainment Group/Analogue Productions XAPP74024D64
Release Date: 1968/2012
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: AcousticSounds
Duration: 00:33:03
Recorded: February–May 1968, TTG Studios, Hollywood, California
Mastered by Doug Sax using an all-tube system. Overseen by Bruce Botnick, The Doors producer/engineer. DSD files created from the Analogue Productions SACD cutting master by Gus Skinas.


Waiting For The Sun, The Doors’ third album and its first chart-topper, delivered the No. 1 signature smash “Hello, I Love You” and the Top 40 hit “The Unknown Soldier.”
Slant Magazine proclaims that Waiting For The Sun contains some of The Doors’ prettiest, most genial lilts: “Love Street,” a fictionalized sketch of the Bohemian street where Morrison lived with his wife, Pamela Courson; the wistful “Summer’s Almost Gone,” which includes the lovely refrain, “Morning found us calmly unaware/Noon burned gold into our hair”; and the placid piano ballad “Yes, The River Knows.” More and more, says Slant, Morrison was starting to emulate one of his idols, Frank Sinatra — “after all, they had an insatiable taste for women and alcohol in common.”
Waiting For The Sun was also some of The Doors’ most combative, political work. "The Unknown Soldier" was a barefaced antiwar attack, a reaction to the Vietnam-era hostilities brewing on the home front.
Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings are proud to announce that six studio LP titles — The Doors, Strange Days,Waiting For The Sun, Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman — are featured on 200-gram vinyl, pressed at 45 rpm. All six titles are also available on Hybrid Multichannel SACD! All were cut from the original analog masters by Doug Sax, with the exception of The Doors, which was made from the best analog tape copy.
A truly authentic reissue project, the masters were recorded on tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is a tube machine, as is the cutting system. Tubes baby!

Sinister, beguiling ... these were words reviewers used to describe The Door’s melodic psychedelic-era genre-blending sound. A mix of blues, Eastern music, classical and pop fueled hits such as the bluesy “Love Me Two Times” and “People Are Strange” from The Door’s debut follow-up, Strange Days.
Strange Days featured a smattering of edgy recitations (“Horse Latitudes”) and smoky rockers (“My Eyes Have Seen You”). Morrison’s rallying cry “We want the world, and we want it now!” from the ambitious extended track, “When the Music’s Over,” marked a touchstone for that era’s counterculture movement. Rolling Stone described Strange Days as having “all the power and energy of the first LP, but (it’s) more subtle, more intricate and much more effective.”

Terje Rypdal - Waves (1978/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Terje Rypdal
Title: Waves
Genre: Jazz, Post Bop, Fusion, Jazz Rock, Guitar Jazz
Label: © ECM Records GmbH | ECM Reviews
Release Date: 1978/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:41:22
Recorded: September 1977 at Talent Studio, Oslo


Norwegian guitarist and composer Terje Rypdal, tone poet of the Fender Stratocaster, began his relationship with ECM back in 1970, when he was part of Jan Garbarek's quartet on Afric Pepperbird, the saxophonist's own label debut. Some Rypdal material that didn't find its way onto Garbarek's Sart the following year led ECM's Manfred Eicher to suggest Rypdal record his own album, thereby beginning one of the label's most fertile and long-lasting collaborations.
Rypdal's eponymous debut as leader was recorded that same year. After the Rain (1976) and Waves (1977) followed, the latter featuring some of the jazziest material of Rypdal's career created amidst a stellar supporting cast of Palle Mikkelborg, Sveinung Hovensjø and Jon Christensen. Michael Tucker described "Rypdal's blending of rock and jazz phrasing with a rubato concern for tone colour and dynamics often redolent of the classical world."

Temple Of The Dog - Temple Of The Dog (1991/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Temple Of The Dog
Title: Temple Of The Dog
Genre: Rock, Alternative Rock, Grunge, Hard Rock
Label: © A&M Records
Release Date: 1991/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:38:35
Recorded: November–December 1990 at London Bridge Studios, Seattle, Washington


Featuring members of Soundgarden and what would soon become Pearl Jam, Temple of the Dog's lone eponymous album might never have reached a wide audience if not for Pearl Jam's breakout success a year later. In turn, by providing the first glimpse of Chris Cornell's more straightforward, classic rock-influenced side, Temple of the Dog helped set the stage for Soundgarden's mainstream breakthrough with Superunknown. Nearly every founding member of Pearl Jam appears on Temple of the Dog (including the then-unknown Eddie Vedder), so perhaps it isn't surprising that the record sounds like a bridge between Mother Love Bone's theatrical '70s-rock updates and Pearl Jam's hard-rocking seriousness. What is surprising, though, is that Cornell is the dominant composer, writing the music on seven of the ten tracks (and lyrics on all). Keeping in mind that Soundgarden's previous album was the overblown metallic miasma of Louder Than Love, the accessibly warm, relatively clean sound of Temple of the Dog is somewhat shocking, and its mellower moments are minor revelations in terms of Cornell's songwriting abilities. It isn't just the band, either -- he displays more emotional range than ever before, and his melodies and song structures are (for the most part) pure, vintage hard rock. In fact, it's almost as though he's trying to write in the style of Mother Love Bone -- which makes sense, since Temple of the Dog was a tribute to that band's late singer Andrew Wood. Not every song here is directly connected to Wood; once several specific elegies were recorded, additional material grew quickly out of the group's natural chemistry. As a result, there's a very loose, jam-oriented feel to much of the album, and while it definitely meanders at times, the result is a more immediate emotional impact. The album's strength is its mournful, elegiac ballads, but thanks to the band's spontaneous creative energy and appropriately warm sound, it's permeated by a definite, life-affirming aura. That may seem like a paradox, but consider the adage that funerals are more for the living than the dead; Temple of the Dog shows Wood's associates working through their grief and finding the strength to move on. --AllMusic Review by Steve Huey

Recording: St. Michael’s Church, Highgate, London, uk, 1­3 December 2015


As I look back over the last 25 years of performances and recordings (our debut concert was in London on 13 July 1991) I hope and trust that we still offer our audiences the same enthusiasm and excitement for baroque and classical music that we had in the early days. Concert performances have taken us all over Europe, to the Far East and Australia and throughout North and South America. In recent years our work in the Mission Churches of the Chiquitos and Moxos Indians in Bolivia has had a much wider impact than we could have imagined, promoting a rich cultural heritage that was until 10 years ago almost entirely unknown outside of Bolivia. Our recordings for Channel Classics during this period have not only embraced mainstream baroque music but also given rise to some unique projects, which have demonstrated the mutual trust and respect we have for each other. The opportunity to propose and then record some of these seemingly crazy ideas I have had over the years has further strengthened our relationship with Channel Classics, a record company who trust its artists integrity and take a keen interest in their development and promotion. Over the years the membership of the ensemble has naturally evolved and instead of seeing change as a weakness, I feel strongly that each new member has brought something unique to the ensemble and offered us a refreshing insight into repertoire we have known and loved for years, reinvigorating the ensemble. So to the next 25 years!

Tchaikovsky - Piano Trios - Swiss Piano Trio (2011) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Сomposer: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)
Artist: Swiss Piano Trio
Title: Tchaikovsky: Piano Trio, Op. 50 “In Memory of a Great Artist“
Genre: Classical
Label: © Audite Musikproduktion
Release Date: 2012

Duration: 00:50:38



In March 1881 Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky received the news of the death of his friend Nikolai Rubinstein whilst he was in Paris - a great blow for the composer who had been engaged to teach at the newly founded Moscow Conservatory thanks to Rubinstein. Tchaikovsky decided to dedicate a piece of music to his late friend - not a classical work for choir or orchestra but one for piano trio. The memory of Rubinstein evidently enraptured him to the extent that he burst all dimensions with his Trio Op. 50. Two monumental movements make up a memorial work which, however, also has optimistic moments. Following an 'Elegiac piece' is a set of variations with a duration of nearly thirty minutes which comprises a slow movement, scherzo and finale, all under the roof of a simple Russian theme. Technically, this trio presents a challenge to every piano trio.
