"... everyone is on top form. Guerrero galvanizes the orchestra to play with all the requisite style and brilliance and the music itself is both substantial and fun."
- Fanfare

"Recording of the Month ... the sound is crisp and beautifully-layered. If you’re wondering what’s new and thrilling in the symphonic tradition, this release is definitely one not to miss."
- MusicWeb International

Recorded live in Nashville in April and September 2012, this Grammy-nominated album contains Fandangos by Puerto Rican composer Roberto Sierra along with world premieres of his dramatic Sinfonía No. 4 and Carnaval, which is subtly evocative of Schumann. Conductor Giancarlo Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony won two previous Grammies in 2011 and 2012 and have proven to be fervent advocates of contemporary music and composers like Sierra.
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz, 5.6448 MHz DSD  – 2xHD - Naxos Studio Masters

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 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 192 kHz / 24-bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analogue 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!
