Description

If you’re a guitarist, you know the name Laurence Juber. In his former life, Laurence was invited by Sir Paul McCartney to become a member of Wings. In fact, he has had the honor of performing with all of the Beatles except John Lennon. Over the past decade or so, he has been become one of the top finger-style acoustic players in the world. His compositional and arranging skills are as strong as his virtuosity. Joined here with Domenic Genova and Steve Forman, LJ expands pieces in a bluesier/jazzier direction — a perfect balance especially for a high-resolution, 5.1 channel surround project.

And the sound of this recording has established Guitar Noir as a true reference disc! This is the project that has won multiple Surround Music Award nominations, topped the DVD Etc list of The 20 Best Sounding Multi-Channel Releases AND won the 2005 DEMMY award from the Consumer Electronics Association for Best High-Resolution, Multi-Channel Track.

One of the 3D Music Albums™ that we shot during the June 2010 sessions was performed by the 2010 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition winners – The Old City String Quartet. This young group is made up of recent graduates of the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Their youth and energy are wonderfully captured on this ground breaking 3D production… one of the first classical projects for Blu-ray 3D. The quartet is joined by fellow classmates clarinetist Ruokai Chen and horn player Corey Klein. They are featured in the well-known clarinet quintet and a virtuoso horn quintet.

Mozart’s music is familiar to most music lovers and although extremely accessible to everyone is full of compelling harmonic and compositional intricacies. Imagine the experience of being close to the instrumentalists when listening to the 5.1 “stage” mix or switch to the traditional HD-Audio 2-channel stereo mix and revel in the detail and intimacy that AIX Records is famous for.

This disc was shot using 3D cameras and is a compliant Blu-ray 3D™ but is completely compatible with both 2D HDTVs and audio playback equipment.
