Best of Show award for “Greatest Technological Breakthrough: Reference
Recordings’ HRx ultra-high resolution (176.4/24) digital music format.” (Alan
Taffel: The Absolute Sound, April/May 2008)
"Reference Recordings, a company at the forefront of technical advancements for
the past 30 years, has broken through the technical barriers to deliver to
listeners the exact high-resolution digital bitstreams created during the
recording sessions. The company's HRx format encodes as WAV files on a DVD the
master recording, which was sampled at 176.4kHz with 24-bit resolution. For the
first time, you can listen to the original high-resolution datastream of some
spectacular titles from the Reference Recordings catalog." - Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, January 2009
Sergei Rachmaninoff was one of the most beloved composers of the twentieth
century. His music is redolent of his Russian homeland, and it sings long, lush
melodies that define the term "romantic." Everyone who knows and loves his piano
concertos will enjoy these lyrical and dynamic works for orchestra. The
"Symphonic Dances" in recent years have become one of Rachmaninoff’s
most-performed scores. The five "Ètudes-Tableaux" were orchestrated by Ottorino
Respighi from the brilliant originals for piano. "Vocalise" is one of the great
classical melodies, and is hummable by everyone. Initial response from renowned
reviewers is amazingly positive.
