“I found myself making much more use of my Google Play Music subscription than ever — the C 338 made it so easy and satisfying. I heard Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth, and recognized in her recording of concertos by Albinoni, Haydn, Hummel, and Neruda (256kbps MP3, Simax Classics/Google Play Music) her light touch, with just enough air to fill the hall without ever seeming forced, that I’d heard from her in concert at the 2015 Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music. The C 338 communicated the essence of her style in the Haydn with graceful interplay between the soloist and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra (in this concerto led by Terje Tønnesen). In the first-movement cadenza, it reproduced Helseth’s wide dynamic range and clarity of tone. Of course, only so much can be done with compressed streaming services, but the C 338 provided as good an experience as I’ve enjoyed with high-bitrate MP3s.”
