"CD of the Week ... a real winner, not just for Nebolsin’s playing, but because of the addition of the totally overlooked Concert Fantasia."
- Classic FM

Uzbekistan-born pianist Eldar Nebolsin takes centre stage on this Tchaikovsky programme featuring the Piano Concerto No. 2, performed here in the composer’s original version, full of life-enhancing character and emotion. Also included is Tchaikovsky's rarely presented but beautiful Concert Fantasia; both works allowing unique interaction between soloist and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra led by Michael Stern.

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue master source. It may contain noise, distortion or other artifacts, and may also contain audio which is limited in bandwidth or dynamic range, due to the technology available at the time of its production. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

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 analogue from the original 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters.

The analogue signal is then sent through a high end tube preamplifier before being recorded directly in DSD 5.6 MHz using the Merging Horus/Hapi In and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

Each format (96 kHz, 192 kHz, DSD 2.8 MHz and DSD 5.6 MHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock.

2xHD mastering: René Laflamme and André Perry
2xHD executive producer: André Perry

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!
