Channel Classics – awarded ‘label of the year 2015’ by Gramophone on September 17th – is celebrating 25 years of working with the best musicians! I selected 25 recordings we released over the past 25 years to offer you for a very special price. To top it off we put together a sampler with 25 tracks I picked because of a special memory I have of the recording session, an artist I am really fond of or a composer I discovered.
Since Channel Classics only recorded in DSD since the year 2000, some tracks have been replaced by a different piece, by the same artist, recorded in a later year. Two artists that appeared on the original track list on the regular CD were never recorded in DSD at all, and thus I choose two other artists to be included on this DSD sampler.
You can read anecdotes about the 25 takes in the booklet.
