Born in the European salons of the 18th century aristocracy, the symphony orchestra still plays an important role in the musical life of our times. Capturing the sounds of these and other large ensembles has never ceased to be a challenge to recording engineers and producers worldWIDE.
Multichannel recording adds a new dimension of realism and enhanced means of expressivity to large-ensemble recordings. This workshop explores the ways in which leading recording engineers deal with the age-old question of how to transport a huge body of sound from a hall into the listeners’ private spaces.
