Notes and Editorial Reviews

Winner of the 2009 MIDEM Classical Award.

The MIDEM Classical Awards are presented annually by an independent jury during the MIDEM music conference in Cannes. The jury is made up of music journalists from leading international music magazines, radio stations and musical institutions: no jury member is – as is the case with some of the other musical awards – a producer or manager of a label which has submitted releases for the prize. Thus the jury of the MIDEM Classical awards not only benefits from the profound musical knowledge of its members but is also independent of any obligations or constraints in relation to the production and marketing of the prize-winners.

Read more the "Legendary Recordings" bears the quality feature "1st Master Release". This term stands for the excellent quality of archival productions at audite. All historical publications at audite are based, without exception, on the original tapes from broadcasting archives. These are the original analogue tapes, which attain an astonishingly high quality, even measured by today's standards, with their tape speed of up to 76 cm/sec. The remastering – professionally competent and sensitively applied – also uncovers previously hidden details of the interpretations. Thus, a sound of superior quality results. CD publications based on private recordings from broadcasts cannot be compared with these." -- Ludger Böckenhoff, Producer
