Where technology meets art
Mark Zeltser, In Luxembourg, 1980 -- Echternach, Luxembourg
In 1980, I did a series of classical recordings in Europe, into which I am finally delving. These were all done with two spaced B&K omni directional microphones, on a Levinson Studer ML5 master tape recorder. The first of this series I am making available is by the world class Russian pianist, Mark Zeltser. Here he is captured brilliantly playing Chopin and Prokofiev in a church in Luxembourg to a live audience. It is one of those moments where the music, piano (nine-foot Steinway), and surroundings create a magical moment sure to please those who love classical music of the highest order. A stunning performance.
