"... orchestrated with a vibrant paintbox by Peter Breiner. Stylish Jun Märkl and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra exploit all the changing hues of this colourful showpiece ..."
- The Guardian

"... the orchestral playing is exemplary and the sonics are first rate. There’s just enough resonance to deliver a true Debussian sound to the listener but all the inner details can still be clearly heard. Both conductor and orchestra were in splendid form during this session. Well worth having and hearing ..."
- MusicWeb International

This volume, part of a 2012 series released to celebrate Debussy's 150th birthday, features the 24 Préludes given subtle and colouristic orchestrations by composer and arranger Peter Breiner and interpreted skillfully by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Jun Märkl. Debussy's two books of Préludes contain some of his most visionary and poetic writing for piano, evoking calm seascapes, delicate wind tracery and snow-covered landscapes. Some moments are steeped in antiquity, such as La cathédrale engloutie, others in expressive portraiture, as in La fille aux cheveux de lin.

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.

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!
