Parnas Double  SL10082 Parnas Double
Madalyn Parnas, violin
Cicely Parnas, cello
This debut recording for the Parnas Duo, Madalyn Parnas, violin and Cicely Parnas, cello, features well-known and well-loved staples of the 20th Century and a few delightful discoveries. Duos by Kodaly and Ravel, the giants of this sparse repertoire, are obviously included. But you may consider adding the Tcherepnin Duo written in 1932 to this short list after hearing this enchanting and often beautifully lyrical piece with its driving folk dance rhythms and energy. The romantic Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia and a truly charismatic string duet by Jonah Thomas composed before and after the 20th century respectively, complete the listening adventure.
The recordings, which raised the audiophile recording industry to high profile status, are presented in this 2-CD set, containing the three Lincoln Mayorga and Distinguished Colleagues albums from 1968, 1972, and 1973. All three have been Mastered from Analogue Disc Originals by Seth Winner. Volume I (formerly Sheffield S9) appears for the first time on Compact Disc. Deluxe colorful packaging includes technical and session photos, as well as historical notes.

This unedited, live recording will test the mettle of any sound system - not to mention the good will of neighbors. - LA TIMES

**CAUTION** This disc contains music of extraordinarily wide dynamic range, encompassing long passages at the threshold of audibility that build to levels of extreme intensity.
A fresh and brilliant recording of a cornerstone of romantic piano literature, the Twenty-four Preludes of Frederic Chopin. These compositions explore the full range of the composer's musical and emotional palette, inspiring Franz Liszt to call them "poetic preludes, like those of a great contemporary poet." The preludes are supplemented by Brahms' last opus for piano and three pieces by Prokofiev: a waltz from his opera "War and Peace" and the contradance and waltz from the motion picture, "Lermontov."

This recording was made with all-tube electronics designed and built by Sheffield Lab. A single-point stereo microphone was used to achieve a natural acoustic perspective. This technique, requiring a musical performance that is naturally balanced to the ear, allows us to capture the full wealth of ambient information, the physical placement of the musicians, as well as the depth and spaciousness of the recording hall. All of the Sheffield Lab classical recordings have used this single-point microphone technique; however, this is the first time we have used this method on a recording of contemporary music. ---DOUG SAX
This recording, originally a live, unedited, direct-to-disc concert performance, is a dramatically beautiful piano recording, engineered by the late Doug Sax (1936-2015). Sax was known for his minimalist, classical approach to recording, with the emphasis on critical microphone placement in a fine acoustical environment.
