Of course, nobody should be forced to listen to the same piece of music for the thousandth time. At TACET they do things differently, in TACET Real Surround Sound: programme or illustrative music in particular cries out to be enacted in surround sound. Just what Beethoven visualized with his movement titles to the Sixth Symphony remains a mystery he took with him to his grave; but he must have imagined something, or he would not have given them those descriptions. Equally, each listener may keep their thoughts on the matter to themselves. That is the reason why at TACET they do make DVDs without pictures. Ready-made pictures hamper the imagination instead of stimulating it. Real Surround Sound, on the other hand, stimulates and liberates the imagination. Could anything be closer to what the composer wanted?
(For those of you who "dont yet? - do surround sound" ;-) there is a very nice stereo version in Tube Only on this SACD. It too shows just what fire the musicians of the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Wojciech Rajski, can generate!)
