Ravel Bolero Hybrid Multi-Channel & Stereo SACD
Provides an Intimately Close Experience with the Score! Sensitive & Subtle Conducting!
Now, finally, after the much-lauded Beethoven symphonies with the Polish Chamber Philharmonic under Wojciech Rajski, here is the first recording of a large orchestra in TACET Real Surround Sound. The larger the ensemble, the more complex the score is, as well as the harmonies contained within it. Is it actually possible to enable the listener to experience, by means of a recording, all the innumerable, refined details and the virtually infinite ideas of instrumentation in the orchestral music of Maurice Ravel? It is only possible for certain if such a sensitive and subtle conductor as Carlo Rizzi directs a top orchestra of the caliber of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. And even then, it is a demanding but incredibly appealing task. We'll let you be the judge as to how well they have succeeded.
A TACET customer described his experience so far with the multi-channel concept TACET Real Surround Sound as follows: "With the Real Surround Sound, you add a dimension that creates a presence - opening up a new way of listening and a new, previously unknown but highly appreciated way of experiencing the music played. It offers the listener not only greater pleasure, but also deeper insight and a significantly closer relationship to the score." - Thomas Gluck
