The Absolute Sound Super Disc List 

TAS Harry Pearson Super LP List

These chamber music recordings were designed to create the sensation of the performers playing in your room as opposed to you being in a venue. Abel plays a silky-warm sounding Guarnerius built in 1719, while Steinberg’s instrument of choice is a Steinway Hamburg Model D concert grand. Given the minimal miking technique, recording to 30IPS 1/2” tape and the care taken in record production you can be sure that these records—all of them—will let you know how well your system performs. The QRP pressings produce pitch black backgrounds with which the originals cannot begin to compete. Plus the music is sublime and/or bombastic! - Micheal Fremer

"This is perhaps the most exquisitely natural recording ever made. All in all, this Wilson record is a triumph of the analog recording art." — International Audio Review

David Abel, violin. Julie Steinberg, piano. Perhaps the most transcendent of David Wilson's brilliant recordings, this remarkable album of solo violin accompanied by piano comes as close to putting the two performers in the listening room as any ever made, writes The Absolute Sound, of Sonatas for Violin & Piano.

Recorded on Wilson's Ultramaster Recorder, built by John Curl, and using a spaced pair of Schoeps microphones driving vaccum tube electronics, the recording has a close perspective that heightens transparency and engagement as well as wonderfully capturing the beautiful tonality of Abel's Guarnerius violin and Steinberg's Hamburg Steinway without exaggering their size.

"The duo performs these works as if they are one." — The Absolute Sound

Chamber music is meant to be performed and enjoyed in a relatively small room, as opposed to an expansive concert hall. Therefore, the perspective of this recording is close... as though the artists are creating the music in your listening room.

The musical instruments used in this recording are of superb quality, complementing the talents of the artists, and enhancing the color and expressiveness of the literature. The piano is a 9 foot Hamburg Steinway model D concert grand, selected for its almost magical harmonic warmth and evenness of tone. The Hamburg Steinway is Ms. Steinberg’s chosen instrument. The violin is a Guarnerius, built in Cremona, Italy in 1719. The Guarnerius sings with speed, focus, and sweetness.

A spaced-pair of Schoeps microphones, driving a vacuum tube line-level amplifier, are used to capture a naturally open, and dynamically accurate sonic presentation
