"Leonard Slatkin has a long history of delivering excellent Copland performances and this new release is no exception."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Recording of the Month ... the orchestral blend is impressive and the level of detail, especially in the score’s quiet stretches, is quite exceptional ... I was also struck by the spontaneity of Slatkin’s reading and the way he makes the music sound newly minted ... this performance, bright and sunny, really is rooted in the great outdoors ... as for the DSO, they respond to Copland’s gentle interludes with hushed intensity ... Slatkin’s Appalachian Spring is one of the most illuminating performances of this American classic that I’ve ever heard. Bravo, bravo and thrice bravo!"
- MusicWeb International

This is the second volume in the Complete Ballet series devoted to Aaron Copland from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and multiple Grammy-winning conductor Leonard Slatkin. The programme includes the rarely heard Hear Ye! Hear Ye!, a ballet Copland wrote for dancer and choreographer Ruth Page. He infused the score with the spirit of his jazz-influenced pieces, controversially distorting part of The Star-Spangled Banner and infiltrating music from some of his earlier works. In complete contrast, Appalachian Spring is his most famous composition, a true American masterpiece founded on transfigured dance tunes and song melodies.
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 5.6448 MHz, 2.8224 MHz DSD/DSF – 2xHD - Naxos Studio Masters

Tracks 8, 12, 16 – 44.1 kHz / 24-bit PCM, mastered in 192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 2.8224 MHz, 5.6448 MHz DSD

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 24-bit / 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 5.6 MHz 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 (96 kHz, 192 kHz, DSD 2.8 MHz and DSD 5.6 MHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock.

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!
