"... the Detroit Symphony plays the music about as beautifully as it can be done and engineering is excellent ... these performances are solid winners that will reward repeated listening."
- ClassicsToday.com

"... Slatkin has a secure grasp in both pieces, finding sublime, yearning wistfulness at the centre of the finale of the Symphonic Dances but harnessing vigour and bite for a thrilling conclusion ..."
- Gramophone

This recording, one volume in an acclaimed series of Rachmaninov's symphonies from Leonard Slatkin and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, features the Symphony No. 3, considered by the composer to be one of his finest works. Both the symphony and the Symphonic Dances, his last work, offer a summation of his late style in blending intense rhythmic energy with rich romanticism.

2xHD Mastering: René Laflamme
2xHD Executive Producer: André Perry

This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

DSD and 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.

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!
