"There are lovely, even bewitching songs here ... Räisänen can command a wide range of vocal colours as well as fine accuracy and control ... the accompaniment is consistently excellent and unobtrusive."
- American Record Guide

"It was fascinating to hear this debut recital disc from Virpi Räisänen. She performs with great enthusiasm and assurance. I admired the emotion she brings to bear in her mid-to-lower register. Viitasalo does sterling work throughout and deserves praise. Räisänen is very talented ..."
- MusicWeb International

The Legacy of Mahler from mezzo-soprano Virpi Räisänen is a collection of late Romanticism Lieder by Mahler as well as Alban Berg, Arnold Schoenberg, Dmitri Shostakovich and Benjamin Britten, who were all strongly inspired by Mahler. Räisänen's duo partner at the piano is the highly acclaimed Marita Viitasalo.
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 5.6448 MHz, 2.8224 MHz DSD – 2xHD - Ondine Studio Masters

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 DSD 5.6mHz 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 (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz and DSD5.6mHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock.

2xHD Mastering: René Laflamme

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!
