Half-Speed Mastered on 180g Vinyl!
Side 2 Plays Backwards!


Recorded in 2005 at the church of Stella Maris in Poland, the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra are conducted by Wojciech Rajski in performing Beethoven's 7th symphony.

The indomitable rhythmic insistence in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 brought the work a considerable number of pictorial descriptions with the object of explaining the mysteries contained within the persistent repetition of the first movement’s motif. In addition to famous pertinent phrases such as "an apotheosis of the dance" (Richard Wagner) and "victory of the symphony over the supreme power of rhythm" (Walter Riezler), such allegorical quips ranging from "ancient wine festival" to "march against France" were bandied about. Equally as rich as the wealth of quotes about this unique symphony is the number of its interpretations, which range from an orgiastic dash to plodding, meek or pussyfooted versions. As can be expected from Wojciech Rajski, the former kapellmeister of Bonn’s Beethovenhalle Orchestra, his stalwart Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra delivers a lively, fresh and sinewy performance. In accordance with the modus operandi of the company Tacet, audiophile tube-only technology was used for this recording thus guaranteeing sound reproduction of the highest quality. It goes without saying that tonal aesthetes and lovers of great symphonies will rush to get their copy of this disc without delay.

Half-speed is literally half the speed. But only during the production! When being played, everything runs perfectly normally again. This record requires no special treatment at all; it simply sounds better. It is as if the craftsman had taken twice as much time for his work. Not only the tempo is reduced at half speed, but also the pitch by a factor of 2. For example, a note of 40 kHz - Tacet recordings do indeed contain such high notes! - is transferred like a 20-kHz tone of a standard recording. Through this, electronics can process higher frequencies and the cutting stylus calmly cuts all the details into the lacquer foil.
