Thanks to the hard work carried out in cooperation with recording studios as well as an increasing number of music labels (Plus Loin Music, Bee Jazz, Ambronay Editions, Zig Zag Territoires, ECM, Mirare, Aeolus, Ondine, Winter & Winter, Laborie, etc.), Qobuz now offers a rapidly-growing selection of new releases and back catalogue records in 24-bit HD quality. These albums reproduce exactly the sound from the studio recording, and offer a more comfortable listening experience that exceeds the sound quality of a CD (typically "reduced" for mastering at 44.1kHz/16-bit). "Qobuz HD" files are DRM-free and are 100% compatible with both Mac and PC. Moving away from the MP3-focused approach that has evolved over recent years at the expense of sound quality, Qobuz provides the sound calibre expected by all music lovers, allowing them to enjoy both the convenience and quality of online music.

Note 24-bit HD albums sold by Qobuz are created by our labels directly. They are not re-encoded using SACD and we guarantee their direct source. In order to continue on this path, we prohibit any tampering with the product.

Stand Back

Stevie Nicks

Pop/Rock - Released March 29, 2019 | Rhino Atlantic

Download not available
Released to coincide with Stevie Nicks' solo induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame -- she is the first woman to be inducted twice, once with a band, once as a solo act -- the retrospective Stand Back: 1981-2017 is available in three distinct forms. First, there's a deluxe edition with either three CDs or six LPs, divided by a disc of solo hits, a disc of collaborations, and a disc of live material buttressed by contributions to film soundtracks. Second, there's a digital version containing 40 of the triple-disc's 50 tracks, with a single-disc collection of hits bringing up the rear. Of the three, the latter is the most user friendly, containing all of her big hits along with live versions of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" and "Gold Dust Woman." The expanded digital version follows similar contours but it's the deluxe version that offers the richest portrait of Nicks, fleshing out the familiar '80s staples and album rock hits with deep cuts. While it covers much of the same ground as 1998's triple-disc box Enchanted, this has a greater percentage of original hit singles and interesting curios, making it the best comprehensive career overview of Nicks yet assembled.© Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Cello Concertos of 1966 (Édition 5.1)

Maximilian Hornung

Cello Concertos - Released December 10, 2018 | Myrios Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
Two “Soviet” concertos for cello and orchestra, both written in 1966, that is the idea behind this recording of cellist Maximilian Hornung. Of course, the most famous of the two is and remains Shostakovich's Second Concerto, written for and premiered by Rostropovich. Less famous, except perhaps in Georgia, is the Georgian composer Sulkhan Tsintsadze (1925-1991), himself a renowned virtuoso cellist, who composed an impressive number of chamber music, concertos, symphonies, operas, oratorios, completely ignored by the rest of the world, what a pity. Tsintsadze, as might be thought from a "regional" Soviet composer, often borrows from the folklore of his country, but this is in no way a limitation or a specialization, no more than the way Khatchaturian would sometimes borrow from Armenia. Here is his Concerto No. 2 in five episodes, in which Tsintsadze is certainly quite indebted to Shostakovich, but also to Prokofiev undoubtedly, even to Khatchaturian here and there. The instrumental language is both brilliant and idiomatic. The contrast between his concerto and that of Shostakovich – keeping in mind that they both date from the same year – is striking. The cellist Maximilian Hornung has already performed as a soloist with the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, the Tonhalle Zurich, the London Philharmonic, the Orchestre National de France, the London Philharmonia; in short, many of the most prestigious orchestras in the world. © SM/Qobuz

LISZT Transcendental Etudes (5.1 Edition)

Kirill Gerstein

Solo Piano - Released December 7, 2022 | Myrios Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
Franz Liszt's Transcendental Etudes have enjoyed renewed interest among pianists who wish to showcase the composer in all his aspects as a virtuoso performer, mystic, and innovator of piano techniques. This collection of visionary pieces is much more than a group of challenging exercises, rather, more a summation of Romantic thinking, both musical and poetic. Liszt was one of the great creators of evocative character pieces, of which Feux follets and Harmonies du soir have become representative examples. But the whole work is an excellent vehicle for Kirill Gerstein's bravura abilities and his deeply reflective expressions, which make this performance a worthy addition to the growing catalog. Perhaps the most striking characteristic of Gerstein's playing is his subtle displays of color, even in the midst of fiendishly difficult passages. Gerstein's prismatic timbres and shadings of articulation are fascinating to explore on listening, and his exceptional artistry makes this recording of the Transcendental Etudes a must-have for any collection. The hybrid SACD gives Gerstein a great sound advantage, and the spacious ambience of the Siemens Villa in Berlin gives the performance an appealing balance of physical presence and resonance. © TiVo
