"… one of the most thrilling works in the orchestral canon ..."
- The Village Voice

"The atmosphere is established not merely with confidence but with freshness as well."
- Gramophone

This album is the first volume in a series of the complete orchestral works of Maurice Ravel, featuring acclaimed American conductor Leonard Slatkin leading the Orchestre National de Lyons. Includes Slatkin's interpretation of one of the most popular works in all of classical music, Bolero, which Ravel himself called an "orchestrated crescendo."

“The music of Maurice Ravel has a special place in my heart. There are those who consider him all craft and little art, but I believe the creative output of this composer ranks with the very greatest of the musical world."
- Leonard Slatkin

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 96kHz/24-bit resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier and (if needed) will be EQ’d 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 2.8224 MHz/1-bit and PCM 352.8kHz/24-bit and 192kHz/24-bit 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!
