TACET L 196
Antonin Dvorak: String Sextet in A major, op. 48 - The Auryn Quartet + Christian Altenburger (va), Patrick Demenga (vc)

Unusually, Antonín Dvorák’s String Sextet op. 48 was recorded using ten modern microphones from TACET’s collection of tube microphones, and not a single historical one. However, these new microphones have a great deal in common with the 'old' ones, as a glance at the history of the manufacturer shows ... As a matter of fact, the sound of the Microtech UM 92.1 S is somewhat similar to Andreas Spreer’s favourite microphone, the historical Neumann M49 produced by the Berlin company Neumann; it conveys a warm, silky yet always transparent sound. The enjoyment found in this recording is, however, not solely due to the microphones but (once again) primarily to the musicians. The Auryn Quartet, augmented by Christian Altenburger on the viola and Patrick Demenga on the cello, bring out all the intricate details, which are to be found in the score of this harmonic and melodic masterpiece, and pamper us with a true feast for the ears.

Recording: November 2010 in Honrath, Germany, by Andreas Spreer
Production: Andreas Spreer
