The Great Comeback – Horowitz at Carnegie Hall, worldwide release August 23, 2019

a spectacular edition, transferred, edited, mixed and mastered by Swan Studios, New York City



After an absence of twelve years, Vladimir Horowitz’s return to the concert stage was one of New York’s most exciting musical events. In the months before the historic day of May 9, Horowitz went to Carnegie Hall – twice in January, twice in April – to play for his wife and close friends, before he decided he was ready to perform publicly. Columbia Masterworks recorded these intimate private recitals, as well as his subsequent rehearsals for his return in 1966, on tape, and they have remained almost entirely unreleased for more than 50 years. The upcoming edition invites the listener to enter the circle of the few Horowitz confidants who attended these events in the darkened, almost deserted hall: We hear Horowitz enjoying the freedom of improvisation in previously unheard, sparkling performances, his complete recordings in the brilliant sound of the concert hall, and many witty conversations recorded in an intimate working atmosphere. The 212-page photo book contains a vast collection of previously unseen photos by Don Hunstein, three new essays by Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Tim Page, pianist Jed Distler and Horowitz scholar Bernard Horowitz, as well as facsimile images and full transcriptions of the conversations.

"LOOK MA - no computer screen!"

Last week we mastered for Impex Records with Chuck Granata and Marty, a pure analog chain to half inch ATR Magnetics on my Studer A80 (Faithfully serviced by Bob Shuster). The weekend I spent sequencing and assembling old school - by razor. Here you see the last track coming off reel 4 to Side B of the vinyl master (at 30ips). I like having color coded reels for organization - original masters, tails with nice fades, take up of left overs, and then what is left "on the cutting room floor". It is nice to be able to work without a computer on once in a while. What you don't see here is the most important tool when doing analog editing - my STAX headphones (to the left). You need to crank them when you have your hands on the reels to find the exact point on the tape to cut (note china marker). Like construction: measure twice, cut once..... I hope you enjoy this audiophile release, which will be limited edition 33.33 and a double set at 45rpm vinyl. Oh, and those of you that prefer digital - I also created an SACD Edit master via Mytek converters. Old Blue Eye's never sounded so true...

SwanStudios.nyc Recording Cantori New York at Saint Paul's in Brooklyn. Fantastic Sessions with Maestro Mark Shapiro. This was recorded using Sennheiser NYC 800 Twins as the main pair, followed by Schoeps Mikrofone for spots, Neumann TLM 170's on the Cellos, and DPA Microphones high voltage 4009's for ambiance. Reasoning for the Twin;s this time on the mains is I wanted post control of direct focus to rear capture. Found the sweet spot where the chorus sounds like a single instrument, and the spots are just gravy.... Love choral recordings! BTW - Mic pres are Millennia, Grace, and Rupert Nevet 5024's for the Twins, Solid State Logic (SSL) AlphaLink MADI converter. Nothing but the best for my clients.
