Anton Baranov is one of the foremost guitarists of his generation, having won both the 2013 Guitar Foundation of America and Francisco Tárrega Competitions. His programme features four composers of different generations and diverse backgrounds from Central and South America, who combine traditional elements of the guitarist’s art in the Latin-American world with a delight in experimentation. The result is an entertaining and imaginative kaleidoscope of colour and rhythm.
Known for his daring interpretations and innovative programs, world renown guitarist and composer Roland Dyens called him, “…a real musician, one of those rare guitarists who are able to have their attendees almost forget the instrument they play, managing to have them focus on the expressivity of the music and only this.”
“Mr. Baranov plays with the stylistic identity of a native of Latin America. No Russian accent here.” -American Record Guide, Kenneth Keaton.
“A most adventurous programme of late 20th century Latin American Guitar Sonatas from the Russian winner of the 2013 Guitar Foundation of America Competition.”
The album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable. DSD and 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.
