Discussion: Hindemith - Frank Peter Zimmermann

I assume the Concerto is the 44.1 kHz 24 bit, and the chamber pieces are 24 bit / 96 kHz ? Looks very tempting, especially after the superb Zimmerman trio SACDs.

Also looking forward to it: I only have Supraphon disc from Gold edition of Karl Ancerl.

Very welcome, indeed.

Overall, however, Hindemith remains scandalously neglected on SACD. How about the cello concerto, Harmonie Der Welt, Serena and B flat symphonies, Trauermusik and Concert Music for Strings and Brass?

Just for starters...

+ Piano Concerto as well, pls.

You assume correctly. And it should be - the man is a marvel!

Yes, indeedy - having now heard this fine disc, I can handily confirm his superb playing, in a series of unjustly neglected 20th Century Hindemith masterworks.

All in all, I find this a wonderful disc, and quite the best BIS I have heard for ages. But that's just me...

OK, now here is where I get to ask the damn awkward question, though. You didn't really expect to get off that lightly, did you?

And you can safely invite me to 'bog off' if I have gone too far. Quite simply, the concerto sound really struck me from the first bars as not being totally consistent with my understanding of current BIS recording house style. Despite its relatively lowly 24/44.1 origin, it sounded to my ears far more open and simply/naturally miked, with the Alter Oper's acoustic presented quite beautifully. As you know, I have frequently given you stick in the past for what I perceived as a lack of hall sound in some recent BIS recordings. Well, this one seemed to have it in spades!

Only after subsequently checking the label did I find this was a co-production with Frankfurt Radio.

So, to the $64,000 question - your miking or theirs? If this is in commercial confidence, though, please feel free to ignore.

Cheers

Jon

OK, I get it. I'll let my ears do the judging, then.

Hello,

Theirs. Their production entirely, as far as the Concerto is concerned. We did the rest. Credit where credit is due.
No follow-ups, please. We like the way we record.

Best - Robert
