“The Best of
Audiophile Classics”

Again Opus 3 is glad to release the another album from our vaults!

Due to many requests for a Classical Collection album, and also because of the "Classical Delights" album was discontinued some years ago because it was not an SACD, we have decided to produce The Best of...Audiophile Classics.

This is a different Classical Collection album with some musical spices, normally not found on these kind of albums.   The program includes “Zappa-music”, unusual Percussion music, as well as Choir, Organ and Guitar Quartet!   Together with a couple of romantic classical tracks, this album really offers a unique variation of timbres and dynamics!

Needles to say again, my re-mastering the analogue recordings to high resolution digital, i.e. SACD, was really worth it the way I can do it nowadays because the digital pro audio world has during the past decade really moved forward sonically very much!
