Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique
Wagner: Overture & Venusberg music from Tannhauser

Sinfonieorchester Wuppertal
Julia Jones (conductor)

This edition is the second SACD release of the 3D Binaural Series by hd-klassik with live productions of the Sinfonieorchesters Wuppertal in 3D Binaural Stereo, recorded in one of the most beautiful concert halls in Europe, the Historische Stadthalle in Wuppertal (Germany), under the direction of GMD Julia Jones.

Love, art and society many values and patterns emerged in the 19th century that continue to influence our desires for a passionate, fulfilling love. The lives and works of the composers Hector Berlioz (1803 1869) and Richard Wagner (1813 1883) back up this assertion. Tannhäuser is about the struggle of two principles that chose the human heart as their battleground: conflict between body and spirit, hell and heaven, Satan and God. (Charles Baudelaire: Richard Wagner and Tannhäuser in Paris, 1861) As man and artist alike, Richard Wagner was a passionate, valiant and controversial contemporary. In Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf der Wartburg (1842), right at the outset of his career, he composed a romantic opera about precisely this fraught zone between artist and society, and about the conflict of instinctive emotions.

The real title of Hector Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique op. 14 is Episode de la vie d un artiste (Episode in the Life of an Artist) and was envisioned as the first part of the monodrame lyrique Lélio ou le retour à la vie Op. 14b. The classification as Symphonie fantastique was to be understood as a subtitle only, meant to indicate that something completely new, and indeed fantastic, would transpire here with the form of the symphony a truly groundbreaking, unique work in music history, through which Berlioz became the model for Richard Wagner, Liszt, Dvorák, Mahler or Schumann.

Aren’t these just binaural stereo SACD’s rather than MC?

Comment by Adrian Quanjer - June 27, 2018 (2 of 6)

I found this comment from a review on JPC (in German):

Nachteilig ist jedoch, dass der Hörer diesen Eindruck nur beim Abhören mit Kopfhörern gewinnt. Wird versucht, über die Lautsprecher abzuhören, unterscheidet sich die Wiedergabe kaum oder gar nicht von einer gewöhnlichen CD/SACD. Die räumliche Klangreproduktion einer Mehrkanal-SACD über das Surround-System kann hier nicht erreicht werden.

It confirms your suspicion that there is no MC. These recordings are primarily made for headphone listening, providing a spacial (3D) sound.

Edit: This is what I found on HD-Klassik website:

Use the binaural artificial head technology we can realize for you from now on record in three-dimensional sound quality.

When you play such a 3D recording through headphones, you will be displaced by this unique process almost directly at the scene, just as you would experience recording live, making this recording method is different from all others.

The result is a more natural sound and space impression that comes close to that of human hearing.

Although this method is primarily intended for headphone playback, the image of the 3D image through speakers is also very natural and space.

In all of the usual, conventional stereo recording method, the sound sources on a straight line connecting the ears or just above the head shown (so-called "in-head localization"), which does not correspond to the natural human hearing and therefore an optimum enjoyment of the recording are is through headphones in the way.

In a 3D art head seating, however, the direction of imaging agree on the vertical and on the horizontal plane and the distance perception largely with the natural hearing match: Depending on the direction of incidence of the sound waves, the brain recognizes the particular direction from which a sound is coming from above (below , front, back, left, right).

Thus, a 3D art head because of its human anatomy modeled geometry is able to image a shot in a very similar way as its human model.

No reason to buy this then

The fox whom some one hired said:

"No reason to buy this then"

I say: "WHAT?" Of course it all depends on one's reaction to hot things covering one's ears

Bruce, I see that to hear this at it's best you should also shell out about $5000 for the related "headphone optimizer". That ought to cool you down (well it would certainly frost my butt)!

Well Bill, you certainly have my number! $5000 phew !
