Exclusive Hand-Numbered Edition 180g Vinyl 10LP Box Set!
Recorded Using A Dedicated Two-Microphone Setup In M/S-Configuration!
Lacquer Cut From 24-Bit Master Files!
Includes 52-Page Hardcover Book!

Recordings of all the Beethoven symphonies with their chief conductor are always a milestone in the artistic work of the Berliner Philharmoniker. At the end of 2015, the cycle was performed under the direction of Sir Simon Rattle. Public and the press alike celebrated these performances which impressively revealed the virtuosity and the revolutionary energy of the works. Following on from the CD recording, the cycle is now being released as an exclusive vinyl edition. A special feature of this version is the purist recording approach, using just one single pair of microphones in mid-side setup (MS stereo). In this way, a sound can be captured that is extraordinarily close to the original acoustics of the Philharmonie.

"Here's another interesting recording project from Berlin Philharmonic Records: a "one-point" microphone Beethoven Symphonies box set with Sir Simon Rattle conducting, on 10 180g LPs... including a hardcover 52 page book as well as a download card for the original 192/24 bit files...

"...Only the vinyl features the one point microphone technique also used for the Brahms Direct to Disc cycle. A reader who compared the vinyl to the digital says the one point microphone produced a far better focused sonic picture."
