Torvald Torén, one of the most notable Swedish organists of his time, performed a vast amount of organ repertoire and is considered a foremost interpreter of French Romantic symphonic music. This double album compiles selections from previously released '70s and '80s recordings dedicated to both Marcel Dupré, considered the greatest organ composer of the 20th century, as well as Maurice Duruflé. Torén studied with Duruflé in Paris and had the unique opportunity to learn from the composer himself.
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 5.6448 MHz, 2.8224 MHz DSD – 2xHD - Naxos Studio Masters

For the 2xHD transfer of this recording, the original 1/4”, 15 ips CCIR master tape was played on a Nagra-T modified with high-end tube playback electronics, wired with OCC silver cable from the playback head direct to a Telefunken EF806 tube. The Nagra T has one of the best transports ever made with four direct drive motors, two pinch rollers and a tape tension head.
We did an analog transfer for each high-res sampling and A & B comparisons were made with the original LP, using the KRONOS turntable with a BLACK BEAUTY tone arm.
192kHz was done using Ayre QA9pro
DSD was done using dCS 905 and dCS Vivaldi clock
DSD2 was done using Ayre QA9pro

2xHD Mastering: René Laflamme 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!
