專輯介紹

這套限量精裝專輯收錄1944-56年間單聲道錄音時期,由DECCA最傳奇的錄音技術 - ffrr(Full Frequency Range Recording全頻段錄音)所錄製的53張專輯。包括了DECCA於1950年6月發行的第一張長時間播放的黑膠唱片(LP: Long Play),由指揮大師安塞美於1949年11月在瑞士羅曼德錄製的《彼得洛希卡》。另外還包括蕭提早年錄製的巴托克、高大宜與海頓的作品,以及克納普茲布許的布魯克納與克萊巴的貝多芬作品錄音等。

這套產品不僅帶領樂迷探索DECCA最早期的高傳真錄音歷史,並再現了許多早已經被遺忘的珍貴錄音,包括特里雅斯特三重奏(Trio di Trieste)、奇喬諾五重奏(Quintetto Chigiano)、葛利勒四重奏(Griller Quartet)等。自從初版黑膠唱片發行以來,這些錄音已絕版超過六十年。其他同樣受人矚目的音樂家還包括鋼琴家:柯爾榮、卡欽、顧爾達,小提琴家:黎奇、坎波利,與大提琴家:傅尼葉、詹德隆、妮爾索瓦等。

專輯以具有金屬質感的紙質包裝,並保留了每一張CD的原始唱片封套設計與錄音資訊,以及珍貴的照片。附錄的多國語言解說冊,包含由Raymond McGill與Mike Gray撰文介紹ffrr的發展歷程、相關的音樂家與錄音場地等等。

1940年代,二次世界大戰戰火方酣,歐陸在希特勒的淫威下紛紛屈服,唯英國仍屹立於大西洋上堅守最後防線。此時DECCA工程師應英軍要求,以其頂尖錄音技術開發出ffrr,協助英國海軍於英吉利海峽捕捉深藏海底的希特勒U型潛艇,不但仔細錄下海底的聲音,並據其分辨敵我,使德國海軍無法越雷池一步。1944年DECCA再將這個技術運用在音樂錄音上,大幅度提昇唱片的音質,不但為聲音品質帶來革命性的影響,也促成了日後高傳真立體聲年代的來臨。1950年進而發行了第一個適用於ffrr錄音的唱臂,以及十二吋的長時間播放黑膠唱片。

八年後(1958),立體身歷聲時代來臨,DECCA發展出第一個立體聲錄音,稱為ffss(Full Frequency Stereo Sound全頻段立體身歷聲)。如此的技術持續改進,到了1962年更發展出「全方位立體聲」(Phase 4 Stereo)錄音技術,為愛樂者提供更優異的聲音品質。這套錄音專輯見證了在高傳真的錄音技術上,DECCA不但是先驅的開拓者,更是唯一領導者。
