THE DECCA SOUND
Today we take high fidelity sound quality for granted, but how did it start? When was the moment when compressed and scratchy sound gave way to natural, realistic sound that captured the whole picture of a performance?

Developed amidst war-time privations, at the height of the 2nd World War, a Decca team led by Arthur Haddy developed equipment to distinguish the different low- and high-frequency sounds made by submarines and aircraft. The resulting equipment had a flat frequency response from 40 to 14000 Hz, paving the way for a whole new world of sound recording.

From June 1944, late in the 2nd World War, Decca employed the new equipment to launch an entire catalogue of ‘full-frequency range recording’ (ffrr) and it was an immediate hit with buyers in the UK and the vital US markets. Two other major developments were critical.

Together with the arrival of the LP format in 1948 which offered music lovers far quieter surfaces than 78rpm and the new medium of magnetic tape which finally allowed musicians to record for longer durations, these 3 major technological breakthroughs acted in concert to allow music to be recorded and reproduced in a natural, realistic way.

This spectacular set encompasses eight decades of Pianism on Decca from the 1940s – 2010s, sequenced alphabetically by artist. It features composers from Bach and Scarlatti to the 20th century, including a brush with Jazz, solo repertoire, piano concertos and concertante works.

Six important ‘schools’ of piano playing are also represented – German, French and Russian, Spanish, English and American.

From the great sovereigns of the piano to the younger generation of artists of today, this is a truly international release with artists from five continents. It includes previously  unpublished recordings and many of the featured recordings making their first appearance on CD.

This release is accompanied by an extensive booklet with notes by Cyrus Meher-Homji on the artists and recordings, and Mike Gray on the evolution of the recording technology.

THIS SET CONTAINS

• Decca’s first FFRR concerto recording available for the first time: Eileen Joyce's recording of Tchaikovsky's 2nd Piano Concerto – never released on 78rpm and long thought lost, the test pressings were recently found at the International Piano Archives in Maryland.

• Select recordings played on composers’ own pianos – Thibaudet playing Chopin’s piano, Schiff and Malcolm on Mozart’s fortepiano.
