A couple of months ago I was honored to be invited to a recording session of the Sibelius Piano Trio by Yarlung Records founder Bob Attiyeh. These early Sibelius piano trios are as yet unpublished and have never been recorded before. Bob was kind enough to let me have a few session tracks to use as demo material, as I absolutely love the music.

Like all Yarlung recordings, they were recorded by Bob Attiyeh on his Merging+ HAPI  (digital audio workstation), while Grammy award winning recording engineer Tom Caulfield brought his own Merging+ Horus to record the same event in multi-channel DSD256.  All of the editing and post production were done in Merging+ Pyramex software.

For the past couple of months, I have been raving about Tom Caulfield’s multi-channel DSD256 recording (Channel Classics) of the Mahler 3; Iván Fischer conducted the Budapest Festival Orchestra at the Bela Bartok National Concert Hall in Budapest, Hungary in April 2016. John Atkinson (editor of Stereophile, bass player and a recording engineer) commented after hearing this sublime recording:

…a new Channel Classics recording of Mahler’s Symphony 3, performed by Iván Fisher conducting the Budapest Festival Orchestra and recorded in multi-channel DSD256, may well have been the finest recorded orchestral sound I have experienced.
