TECHNICAL INFORMATION

For this recording we used two Schoeps 221B omni-directional microphones in a basic stereo placement to achieve a recording of optimum clarity and natural balance. The signal from the custom mixing console was fed directly into the digital tape recorder.

The orchestra was positioned left to right of the conductor: first violins, violas, celli, second violins, with bass behind celli. The woodwinds, brass and timpani were seated behind the strings.

The hall we selected for this recording has a good music-making ambience: a large, warm, not echoing room with height, irregular surfaces and lots of wood. With our engineering we tried to recreate this ambience for the listener.

Once the balance and the dynamic level (gain) were set at the beginning of the first session they were not changed throughout the recording. With digital recording there is no need to increase signal level during quiet passages. Such gain-riding and/or use of peak limiter in unnecessary and highly undesireable for audiophile recordings.
