HE 2004 Music Notes

Renowned Canadian pianist Robert Silverman will be signing copies of his Stereophile CDs at noon on Saturday May 22 at Home Entertainment 2004. Recorded in audiophile sound quality by Stereophile editor John Atkinson, Robert's recordings include Concert, live performances of works by Bach, Chopin, Schumann, and Schubert; Sonata, featuring Frans Liszt's heroic B-minor Sonata; and the complete Beethoven Sonatas.

HE 2004 is taking place this weekend at the Manhattan Hilton, on the corner of 54th Street and 6th Avenue in New York. Robert will be available at the Stereophile both on the second floor, where all his CDs will be available for purchase.

Also available will be a brand-new hybrid SACD of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, produced by John Atkinson and engineered by legendary English engineer Tony Faulkner. Featuring clarinetists Antony Michaelson of Musical Fidelity, the hybrid SACD has four complete versions of the concerto. The SACD layer includes a straight transfer from the DSD master and a transfer form the analog master tape that was recorded at the same time. One of the two versions on the CD layer is downsampled from the DSD master; the other is a straight digital transfer from the analog tape.

K622 costs $20.00 and will be available for sale on this website in June.
