Etienne Gara violin - sonia achkar piano
Violinist Étienne Gara and pianist Sonia Achkar, hailed for their passionate and intelligent playing, join forces on this album of French compositions that pushed the boundaries of audiences’ listening experiences at the time of their origin. Today the four pieces selected for this program are universally recognized as enduring masterworks, staples of the classical music repertoire that have retained all of their original capacity to surprise and certainly their power to seduce. On this recording, Étienne Gara plays the magnificent 1714 Stradivarius “Leonora Jackson.” Its wonderful tone and colors make it one of the most sought after violins for performance. The University of Southern California’s Joyce J. Cammilleri Hall, designed by internationally renowned acoustical engineer Dr. Yasuhisa Toyota, offered the perfect atmosphere and acoustics for recording sessions. The expertly produced surround mix envelopes the listener and amplifies the emotional impact of the performance. To avoid changing the original sound of the musicians, no compression or artificial reverb was added in postproduction.

Bach Greatest Organ Works Volume 1

It was most important for this high-resolution, multichannel production to capture and reproduce in as a natural manner as possible the sound of the historical organ in its acoustic context, the church. No compression or artificial reverb was added in post-production to avoid changing the original sound.
This recording was also nominated for the DVD Entertainment Award 2001.
