Four of the foremost Spanish musicians of their generation - Josep Colomé, violin, Joaquín Riquelme, viola, David Apellániz, cello, Enrique Bagaría, piano - join forces in exploring three of German Romanticism's highest peaks. Brahms's piano quartets are cornerstones of the chamber music repertoire and works of symphonic scope. The Brahms Project offers the listener a very personal and intense rendition of these Brahms masterpieces.
The Brahms Project was recorded directly to DSD 256 Stereo and DSD 256 Multichannel with no DXD processing using Neumann U89i and Schoeps microphones, Horus Analog to DSD 256 converter from Merging Technologies, Grimm Audio cables, and Amphion Loudspeakers by Gonzalo Noque. NativeDSD brings this fine album to our listeners in the recorded DSD 256 resolution for your complete listening pleasure.
Reviewers tell us “Based on Neumann U89i and Schoeps microphones, the Producer and Recording Engineer Gonzalo Noque succeeded in providing a transparent, finely structured recording convincingly mirroring the very dynamic performance of the musicians and integrating the three strings and the Piano (Steinway & Sons) into a sound space with almost ideal acoustics."
