            Review:

            "Audio quality is exemplary. String sound is nicely textured and reflects the participation of multiple musicians playing a single part, rather than one mega-violin. Winds are naturally recessed behind the strings (…) Dynamics are good, though some may want more impact to timpani strokes.

            And the performances? They probably won’t supplant an experienced listener’s favorites. But someone who had never heard a Beethoven symphony, yet knew of the music by its reputation, would quickly understand what all the fuss is about, intuiting the unique character of each work (…) The Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra plays modern instruments yet there are plenty of nods to period practice. (…) The small string section assures clean passagework and excellent string/wind balances. Wojciech Rajski takes an approach that’s sensitive but never fussy. Tempo choices are very well judged. There’s an intimate quality to these readings that is very involving." Andrew Quint, The Absolute Sound

             

            Half-speed mastering. In half-speed mastering, the whole process is slowed down to half of the original speed. A typical 33 1/3 rpm record is cut at 16 2/3 rpm. The source material is also slowed down (reducing the pitch in the process) meaning the final record will still sound normal when played back. Slowing the whole process down allows more time, which means the end result sounds better and is more efficient — allowing engineering to minimize the effects of inherent limitations within the vinyl format. The result is a more accurate and more open high-frequency response in the half speed vinyl when compared with a normal speed recording.
