Notes and Editorial Reviews

A new sampler means looking back to those recordings that have appeared since our last compilation. Every track represents a brief 'sample', not only of the technical side of the SACD, but also of the artists' musical interpretation. Many music lovers like these samplers because the tracks can be completely different from one another in instruments and styles. Always a surprise! Channel Classics continues to be fully committed to the Super Audio CD format. We believe that offering the highest quality of sound recordings to the public is a logical answer to the changing circumstances in the recording industry. For whatever medium the public uses in the future, at least the original recording will be of the highest quality in stereo and Read more multichannel.
