A collection of highlights from critically acclaimed Reference Recordings releases, celebrating this esteemed independent label's thirtieth anniversary! All dazzling HDCD recordings by "Prof." Keith O. Johnson, featuring the first release on Reference of Rumanian Rhapsody No. 1 by Enescu, with Eiji Oue conducting the Minnesota Orchestra.

In recent years, RR beta-tested and introduced the High Definition Compatible Digital (HDCD®) process, co-invented by Keith Johnson -- in our view, the best way to make a digital compact disc.

Reference Recording’s 30th Anniversary Sampler offers a generous helping of primo tracks from recent releases, featuring the Minnesota Orchestra, the Utah Symphony, the Pacific Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the University of Texas Wind Ensemble, organ legend Virgil Fox and organ prodigy Felix Hell, great American pianist Gary Graffman, and our latest piano whiz, Joel Fan. All this marvelous music, including several world premieres (and one first release not available elsewhere), is delivered in “Prof.” Johnson’s most dazzling HDCD® sound for your listening pleasure or for system evaluation. Included in the booklet is a catalogue of current RR releases.
