The Jung Trio is comprised of sisters Jennie (piano), Ellen (violin), and Julie (cello) Jung, and has appeared in concerts all across North America as well as around the world in Asia, Europe, and Africa. In the summer of 2009, the trio made its European debut, performing in Berlin, Germany, and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. Also that year, their recording of Dvorak’s Trio in F minor, Op. 65, was released by Groove Note records on LP and SACD.

We are pleased to announce the availability of Groove Note releases in DSD 128 and DSD 256, in addition to the original DSD 64 releases. These higher bit rate DSD 128 and DSD 256 releases are all pure DSD created.
They are not up samplings, for there are no PCM or DXD conversions involved in their production. They are re-modulations of the original DSD 64 encoding modulation that produced the DSD 64 releases. The sonic advantage to these new Stereo and Multichannel DSD 128 and DSD 256 releases, as with all higher DSD bit rate releases, is the wider frequency passband prior to the onset of modulation noise.This results in the listener’s DAC using gentler and more phase linear filters for playback of the music.

I played the Jung Trio’s recording of Dvorak’s Piano Trio in F MInor, Op. 65, recorded live in concert direct to 2-track analog tape at 30 ips and mastered by Bernie Grundman. It was an ear-opener. The violin, cello and piano were reproduced with appropriately rich darkness, three dimensionality, transparency, and versimilitude that had me thinking: Can it possibly sound any better?
The recording is gorgeous. The violin is silky-rich and real sounding stage right (on the left), while the cello is deep, sonorous and full stage left. The piano, center stage is palpable and appropriately liquid. The recording exudes warmth, transparency and three-dimensionality as the confines of the space are subtly suggested in the delicate acoustic set up around the players.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated but accessible piece to show off just how spectacularly natural your system can sound, you can’t go wrong with this. If it doesn’t sound as if this trio is arrayed on stage not far from where you sit, your system needs work.
