Please note: The 24-bit version of this album is large: 2,78 GB. It's an original DSD recording that we sell in a sample rate of 176.4 kHz. If you can't take advantage of these high res files, you might be better off choosing the 16-bit download instead.
This recording spans music from the composer’s early days and his Requiem, overflowing with humanity, and ends in the days of the musician’s maturity, with his expansive view of nature that supports the echo of the mourning bells, analogous to prayer. Perhaps, unexpectedly, the disc offers, a glimpse of a rare artist’s whole life.
This is an original DSD recording. We have chosen, as an experiment, to let the 24-bit version be 24/176,4 rather than 88,2. we do this, since there has been a demand for ever higher sampling frequencies. The draw-back is of course that it will take longer to download.
We have several other recordings that are made in 24/192 in future. We would like to have your feedback on whether to present then as such or take them down to 24/96, please. Do write to firstname.lastname@example.org with your (nice) comments.
