Tchaikovsky- Violin Concerto in D, Op.35 (Julia Fischer)

Recommended Posts



Downloaded as a DSD ISO from Pentatone Classics. The ISO was packaged in a ZIP file along with nice size cover art (1400x1400 pixels), the album booklet, and another folder which contains the tracks as MP3 files for convenience.


The two channel tracks were loaded into Foobar and processed through the Dynamic Range Meter (with the caveat I'm not sure what conversions occur for the DR Meter to process the DSD files, and if it has any impact on the rating!). Amazing sound quality to match an amazing performance.

For anyone out there who was considering getting this:


Pentatone is running a promotion for 25% off of this album with the promo code "XMAS16". Not sure of the end date, but it should be either Christmas or the end of the year.

Definitely one of the reference recordings and interpretations of the violin concerto. :)
