Pablo de Sarasate, Spanish Dances for Violin and Piano (2020)

De Sarasate

Salvatore Accardo

This album was recorded in the Sala dell'Ermellino - Casa della Musica in Milano in November 2019. For this prestigious recording Giulio Cesare Ricci used the legendary original tube microphones Neumann U47, U48. Recordings are in Stereo DSD on Pyramix using the dCS A/D and D/A converters. A state-of-the-art system without any sound manipulation, neither equalization, nor reverberation, nor compression and expansion...but natural sound with true timbre to best enhance the acoustics of the Sala dell'Ermellino.

The mastering has been relalized by Giulio Cesare Ricci using the Signoricci system, entirely analog and tube The result of this recording is fantastic.

With this recording Giulio Cesare Ricci wanted to make the listener live a unique experience. It is as if the listener was sitting on an armchair positioned in the ideal point of the Sala dell'Ermellino. In this position the sound has a field effect and its depth, width and height are very appreciable. Great dynamics but also great precision of the solo parts. It's an album not to be missed!
