BRUCKNER / Symphony No.8 - 2CD - Takashi Asahina

Takashi Asahina conducts the Osaka Philharmonic Orchestra for this XRCD recording of Bruckner's Eighth Symphony. Takashi Asahina (b. July 9, 1908—d. Dec. 29, 2001), was credited with popularizing the Austro-German repertoire—especially Bruckner, Beethoven, and Mahler—in Japan and had one of the longest careers of any conductor, remaining professionally active virtually right up until his death at the age of 93. A self-taught violinist, Asahina abandoned a legal career and worked as a department-store clerk and a railroad engineer before apprenticing himself to Russian conductor Emmanuel Metter in the early 1930s. Asahina made his conducting debut in 1939 and founded the Kansai Symphony Orchestra (now the Osaka Philharmonic Orchestra) in 1947 and remained its musical director until he passed away. For some, Takashi Asahina was "the Karajan of Japan"; for others, his eminence was derived at least in part from his being the oldest conductor on the international scene; for others yet, he was quite simply an excellent musician, with a special sympathy for the classics of the Austro-German repertoire.

Description du produit


EXTENDED RESOLUTION COMPACT DISC " XRCD " allows the listener to hear what the producer and artist intended... the sound of the original master tape! You don't need a "golden ear" to hear the improvement in an xrcd. The improvement in sound quality of XRCD over a conventional CD is not subtle. Obvious gains in clarity, transparency, dynamics and warmth of XRCD can be heard by all. XRCD allows the listener to hear what the producer and artist intended to hear the sound of the original master tape. And, unlike some other recent attempts to improve CD sound quality, no additional equipment or add on converter is necessary to fully realize the sonic benefits of the xrcd process. All XRCDs will play on ANY CD Player! XRCD is the optimization of CD mastering and manufacturing. The care and time put into the creation of an XRCD far exceeds that of any other compact disc. Sophisticated analysis by both test instrument and ear are used to evaluate every step of signal transfer, from the inception of the mastering process through the final manufacture of the disc. The degree of specialization of the process is such that only one production line at one manufacturing facility in YOKOHAMA, Japan is of sufficient quality to produce the XRCD. Find out why virtually every audio publication in the US has given XRCD a glowing "thumbs up." LISTEN AND COMPARE.
