Located in the nearly 100-year-old former Emmanuel Episcopal Chapel in rural Boyce, VA, the Sono Luminus studios are a world-class recording facility with a special focus on classical and acoustic music. Studio A boasts a 25 foot vaulted wood ceiling over a 35’x65′ original heart pine floor, providing a beautiful natural acoustic. Sono Luminus specializes in the highest caliber of audio quality with the capability of recording 24 simultaneous channels of audio with sample rates up to DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition) 352kHz/24bit or DSD (Direct Stream Digital).
This is among the best sounding solo violin recordings I've ever encountered.
The high-definition studio recording is exemplary – natural, detailed, spacious and well balanced.
The music arose out of a totally black background. The musicians were right there in front of me. Another spectacular recording.

I don’t tend to put much stock in Grammy nominations, which rarely seem to reflect critical consensus or popular acclaim. But this gorgeously recorded CD/Blu-ray set by an exciting young Washington, D.C., chamber ensemble thwarts skepticism
Sono Luminus’s sound is excellent...
The 192K/24-bit 5.1 surround on the Blu-ray Pure Audio disc is warm and superb and makes the accompanying standard CD sound like a shadow of itself.
The recording quality is sensationally vivid.
Over the years I have reviewed quite a few wonderful recordings. However, I don't remember ever having as much musical enjoyment as I did reviewing these four recordings. All four recordings have state of the art sound. The music is interesting both intellectually and musically. The performances are marvelous. All four CDs receive my highest recommendation.

Of course with Jean-Marie LeClair’s Complete Sonatas for Two Violins being released by the engineering studs over at Sono Luminus it should be no surprised that Greg Ewer and Adam LaMotte come off with a bigger ensemble feel that the pair appears...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
