TACET have release an SACD of Beethoven Symphonies No. 7 and No. 8, performed by the Polish Chamber Orchestra.
The following information is from Andreas Spreer of TACET.
“There are plenty of recordings of Beethoven’s symphonies already! But this new recording occupies a unique place amongst them. The stereo version on this SACD is the first recording of the symphonies to use TACET’s own “Tube Only” technique.
“The surround sound version had to be made because there was no existing recording of the symphonies in TACET’s Real Surround Sound. And this is music which cries out for the true Surround Sound experience. Beethoven extending horizons again!
“The uniqueness of these Beethoven recordings is thus partly a result of the different conceptions and aspects of recording technique, but also derives from the intelligent and highly musical interpretation of this grandiose music. Both versions – stereo and surround – “overflow with music”! Wojciech Rajski and the Polish Chamber Philharmonia demonstrate that their performances together are always in the forefront.”
Beethoven’s Symphonies No. 7 in A major and No. 8 in F major performed by the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Wojciech Rajski is TACET catalogue number S149.
