Supertone had the pleasure of recording a live performance of the incredibly talented clarinetist Joan Enric Lluna and the Elan Quintet on location at the Teatro Capitolio in Godella, Valencia, Spain. The concert also featured the wonderful oboe player Cristina Gómez.
The recording will be used for a video, shot by Alex Baker to celebrate the 10th Anniversary concert of The Moonwinds Ensemble. It will also be released later on CD.
Engineering the session was our very own Simon Campbell who said: "We used a selection of AEA and Coles ribbon microphones to capture the natural timbre of the instruments plus Neumann condensers for the ambience. The figure of eight pickup pattern of the ribbons are great in these situations, minimising unwanted bleed between the different instruments. This combined with API preamps and the latest AVID HD/IO running at at 24bit/96KHz gave the recording fabulous dynamics and articulation."
We are looking forward to the release in June 2016.
