A Vivaldi feast!    We have decided to create a companion album to our 'Vivaldi In Venice'. The Venetian orchestra travelled to Air Studios here in London where we created a double LP Direct Cut album.

At the same time we have made a 24 / 192 double download album. In the studio we recorded the orchestra with a minimum number of valve powered microphones, which have captured the sheer jump factor of these superb musicians.

We hope you have as much fun in listening to the album, as we had in making it for you.

The Sea & Sinbad's Ship

The Story of The Kalendar Prince

The Young Prince & Princess

Festival - The Sea - Sinbad's Ship

This is the latest recording from Chasing The Dragon. I have to say that the dynamic range and the beauty of this piece performed by the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Anthony Inglis with Katerina Nazarova as leader, has to be heard to be believed!

I really believe this is our finest recording to date and hope that you enjoy listening to it. There are many recorded versions of this piece of music but I feel that ours may be one of the best out there.

Two Guitars  by Ivan Vasiliev

Spaced Pair,  Nagra VI  24 / 192

Spaced Pair,  1/2'' Tape @ 30 IPS

Spaced Pair,  Next to Valve Mics

Blumlein Configuration

Binaural Head

Here we have chosen Mendelssohn’s wonderful octet performed by The Locrian Ensemble for our latest recording. The musicians are all soloists in their own right, however, they are led by the ubiquitous violinist, Jack Liebeck.

The recording has also given us the opportunity to compare a variety of microphone techniques which we do in the second half of the album. You can compare valve vs transistor mics and the sound of 1/2” tape running at 30 IPS vs digital at 24 /192.

We hope you have as much fun in listening to the album, as we had in making it for you.
