Commissioned in 1979 by the Montreal International Competition, as a piece to be played by the finalists of its violin competition, François Dompierre’s Les Diableries (The Devilries) consists of five movements, each of which sets a distinctive mood and highlights specific characteristics of the instrument. The original version was written for solo violin and orchestra. 

This recording was made in 2014 by multi-award winner Kerson Leong who gained international recognition in 2010 at the age of 13 when he won the Junior First Prize at the Menuhin Competition in Oslo.  Recently, Kerson won the Young Soloist Prize 2015 of the Radios Francophones Publiques.  He is also the First Prize winner of the Stepping Stone 2014 and a five time Grand Prize winner (2005-2009) at the Canadian Music Competition. In 2013, he won the National Arts Centre Orchestra Bursary Competition, as well as First Prize at the 2013 Montreal Symphony Orchestra’s Standard Life Competition.  

This 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.
