  • Get Your Yarlung Recordings Now!

    When I opened my email this morning I saw that HDTracks is honoring Yarlung’s 10th Anniversary with a special built-in Anniversary discount.



    This is wonderful, and great timing with the release of our new James Matheson album in stereo and in SonoruS Holographic Imaging. James Matheson includes the composer’s Violin Concerto, with Esa-Pekka Salonen conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and violin soloist Baird Dodge, Jim’s String Quartet performed by Color Field Quartet, and the haunting song cycle Times Alone performed by soprano Laura Strickling and pianist Thomas Sauer. Wonderful weekend listening, all of it! The CD will be released later.

    If you prefer DSD, click HERE.

    Also just released on HDTracks is Janaki String Trio, one of Yarlung’s iconic early audiophile breakthrough albums. Look! There it is, in the top row of the HDTracks banner.



    Incidentally, we heard cellist Estelle Choi, (Janaki cellist Arnold Choi’s sister) give a superb concert with Calidore Quartet yesterday at the summer concert series at Powell Library at UCLA). To hear the wonderful Calidore Quartet, join us at their Soka debut on November 6th. Repertoire includes the new string quartet we commissioned for Calidore from the wonderful composer Caroline Shaw.

    And speaking of DSD, I just heard Sarah Vaughan Live at Rosy’s, carefully transferred from analog tape by our friends George Klabin and 2xHD. Sarah Vaughan’s 1973 Live in Japan has been my favorite of her recordings for years, but this is stiff competition, at least vocally. Live at Rosy's was recorded in 1978 by NPR for broadcast. This is that late Sarah Vaughan period I like so much. Enjoy! Also on CD and PCM downloads, but if you can play DSD, go for it! Nice review in the Wall Street Journal.

    Happy weekend,

    Oh, I played the tape of the Janaki String Trio for Ked today. I think he was very impressed.

        I wish! Need to convince HDtracks they should sell tape too.

      Bob's tapes are great. They are also among the lowest cost tapes around, particularly if you buy them in sets of four. The cost has been subsidized by some generous donors. I have them all! I'm currently in LA and will be seeing Bob tomorrow.

      The violist of the Janaki String Trio - seen above - is Katie Kadarauch, the assistant principal violist of the San Francisco Symphony and a wonderful musician. We've known Katie since she was in the 5th or 6th grade and a member of the same youth orchestra as our daughter. We used to carpool together to the youth orchestra practices. Her dad and mom are both musicians and her mom and I used to play the last stand viola in the youth orchestra when they were short of violas. Katie at the time was playing first cello, and then moved to principal second violin the next year. She didn't start viola until later. She now plays regularly at my wife's Thursday noon chamber music series at UCSF.
