This is one of three albums Grammy nominated pianist Susan Grace made with Charles West, once called "the most recorded clarinetist in American academia." Now an audiophile reference, recorded at Skywalker Ranch, the album creates the illusion that these two superb musicians are performing in your living room. The digital-only reissue, originally released in 1991, includes works by Debussy, Ravel, Pierre Gabay and Gabriel Pierné, among others.
176.4 kHz / 24-bit, 88.2 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz DSD – Wilson Audiophile Recordings Studio Masters

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue master source. Due to the nature of analogue tape recording, it may contain artifacts or audio which uses a limited amount of the available dynamic range / frequency bandwidth of high-resolution digital audio. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

To capture a clean, dynamic, harmonically rich instrumental presentation, a pair of Shoeps Omni microphones was employed. The microphones' signals were amplified by two superb pure class-A microphone preamps custom-built for Wilson Audio by John Curl. MIT cable carried the balanced line level signal to Wilson Audio’s UltramasterTM 30 ips analogue recorder. Subsequent digital master tapes were made through the Pygmy A/D converter on a Panasonic SV-3700. Playback reference monitoring was performed on Wilson Audio WATT ll/ Puppies, driven by a Spectral DMA-5O amplifier through MIT CVT Terminator cables.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
