New Technology Allows Old Piano Recordings Sound like Today´s Best Digital Music Records!
Zenph, a North Carolina-based company, has developed a new technology capable of capturing the sound of old piano recordings in digital sound, analyzing the recording, and then re-performing, tha is having a real piano play exactly as it was played in the recording – with a very high degree of fidelity.
This has so far allowed to make a digital sound recording of old performers in the mono era such as Glenn Gould, Rachmaninoff, Gershwin and others, liberating music from its medium in a previously unthinkable way!
Their website has an amazing example with a 1921 Rachmaninoff recording.
They were able to create a duet with Rachmaninoff at the piano and Joshua Bell at the violin.
