Just proving that you can't hear again. But I'll agree, the Schwartz Center is an amazing-sounding hall. Probably the best in the city, until the new symphony hall behind the King & Spalding building opens, at least.
Unfortunately it was at the drier sounding Carlos Museum. We made up for it somewhat in microphone placement. Spivey Hall in Morrow has the best acoustics actually.
Ah, yes... Philippe Quint... the dude who left his $4 milion Strad in the back of a taxi. Do you remember what he was playing when you recorded him this weekend? Did he forget any of the notes?
I got to talk to him for quite a while. My knowledge of some NYC Julliard alumni proved valuable. Very nice guy and a true virtuoso imho.
The violin was the Ex-Keisewette Strad. A beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Case with humidity device...the whole nine yards.
I'm still floating on a cloud of air since the recording turned out so well. We created a 24/176 DVD-Audio disc. Tracks were edited today and I get to pick up the final DVDA tomorrow as well as the down-rezzed CD.
