Comment by John Proffitt - January 31, 2017 (1 of 1)

A note about the recording: this is a continuation of the ongoing surround-sound Bruckner symphony series, recorded in public concerts in the Basilica Church of St. Florian, Austria. Although numerous recordings, both audio and video, have been made in St. Florian, this is the first series planned from the outset as multichannel surround, with the goal of capturing the unique ambience of "Bruckner's Church" while preserving a clear and realistic orchestral sound-stage. The 5.0 channel high-resolution master was recorded with five omni-directional Neumann mics, each feeding a single channel of the digital recorder without further EQ, mixing, or signal manipulation. The series is being released on Gramola SACDs and so far has included Symphonies 6 and 8. [the earlier recording of 3 is stereo only and will be re-recorded in surround at a later date]. Symphony 5 will be recorded in August 2017 for release on Gramola in Spring 2018.
