Voted Best Sound of The Show at Salon Son & Image 2011 by Stereophile!

This Numbered & Signed MasterFlash™ 4GB Flash card comes loaded with Melaney Barney & The Buzz Ensemble's performance of Holst's The Planets. The card also includes the album cover in JPEG format, the booklet with all information, a XML file with all track names, an ISRC code and the Fidelio catalogue in PDF.

Gustav Holst's The Planets for brass quintet and organ expertly performed Melanie Barney and the Buzz Ensemble. Excellent performance!

"René Laflamme's recordings on the Fidelio label have always been favorites of mine... SSI (Salon Son & Image 2009) was my first chance to hear high-resolution versions of some Fidelio recordings, played back from René's laptop feeding data via asynchronous USB to the dCS Scarlatti upsampler set to do nothing other than translate the USB datastream to AES/EBU at 96kHz to drive the dCS Elgar Plus D/A. As this has a volume control it was connected directly to a pair of Nagra VPA tube monoblocks which in turn drove the Verity Sarastro 2 speakers that Fred Kaplan reviewed for Stereophile in April (2009). Cabling was all-Shunyata. René uses all-tube microphones and records directly to a Pyramix digital audio workstation. The sound of a transcription for brass and organ of "Mars" from Holst's The Planets was to die for on this system, one of my "best of shows." - John Atkinson, Stereophile

Modifying a work’s instrumentation is a bit like translating a text into another language: one must first understand the composer’s intention, then find the appropriate vocabulary. So, to create a version for brass quintet and organ of Gustav Holst’s suite for large orchestra The Planets, Enrico O. Dastous needed to engage in an exercise of analysis and reflection.

At the heart of Mr. Dastous’ approach is his respect for the content of the original score, for its mechanics and for its architectural outline. Generally speaking, the musical material of the orchestra’s brass section has been redistributed within the quintet while that of the string quartet and of the woodwinds has been attributed to the organ. By doing so, the arranger has restored the orchestral dialogue among the performers and has thus avoided creating a concerto for brass. Despite the reduction of the timbral palette, Mr. Dastous has reproduced the original contrast effects by resorting to all kinds of instrumental combinations, of which those offered by the organ stops. Among the brass, the use of mutes has partly allowed them to substitute for the woodwinds, notably in Mercury. In regard to the particularity of the orchestral writing and to the use of two women’s choirs in the suite’s last movement, Neptune, the arranger had to take more melodic liberties to recreate the original mood.

Central to Buzz musicians’ and organist Mélanie Barney’s interpretation of The Planets is their own respect for Mr. Dastous’ vision of the work. Buzz, mainly known for the quality of its multidisciplinary performances and pedagogical productions, confirms with this third recording—the first to devote itself to a “repertory” work—the seriousness and the rigour of its approach as well as its intrinsic musical qualities and its artistic sensitivity.

For the first time in the history of recording, it is now possible to play back music that has not been altered by any moving part, from the original recording session to your audio system through a computer or a music server. Fidelio records all sessions on a SSD drive and later, they upload directly the unadulterated master on a MasterFlash™ card.

The MasterFlash™ is a 4 GB Flash card that connects to the computer like any regular USB key. All MasterFlash™ cards are numbered and signed and contain a Fidelio recording master in 24Bit/96kHz or 24Bit/176kHz original native WAVE file format (without up or downsampling). The cards also include the album cover in JPEG format, the booklet with all information, a XML file with all track names, an ISRC code and the Fidelio catalogue in PDF.

The advantage of this new technology over DVD data or downloads is a more open and stable imaging with truly pure, natural high frequencies.
