Now, finally, after the much-lauded Beethoven symphonies with the Polish Chamber Philharmonic under Wojciech Rajski, here is the first recording of a large orchestra in TACET Real Surround Sound. The larger the ensemble, the more complex the score is, as well as the harmonies contained within it. Is it actually possible to enable the listener to experience, by means of a recording, all the innumerable, refined details and the virtually infinite ideas of instrumentation in the orchestral music of Maurice Ravel? It is only possible for certain if such a sensitive and subtle conductor as Carlo Rizzi directs a top orchestra of the caliber of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. And even then, it is a demanding but incredibly appealing task. We'll let you be the judge as to how well they have succeeded.
A customer described his experience so far with the multi-channel concept TACET Real Surround Sound as follows: "With the Real Surround Sound, you add a dimension that creates a presence - opening up a new way of listening and a new, previously unknown but highly appreciated way of experiencing the music played. It offers the listener not only greater pleasure, but also deeper insight and a significantly closer relationship to the score." Thank you, Thomas Gluck!
It will also be available on Bluray Disc this autumn.

Australian Hifi (03/01/2014):

These famous Ravel works are now not only on one of TACET's excellent multichannel SACDs, but also recorded using ist Real Surround Sound Technology on a full orchestra for the very first time. (A Pure Audio Blu-ray disc is also available.) Purists may scoff at these Real Surround Sound recordings, but they offer an opportunity for listeners to get closer to the details of scores and to appreciate the skilled work fine orchestrators must do to create the massed sound from the orchestra which they want. more...

This is an absolutely entrancing issue from TACET and will surely be essential listening for anyone who already has, or is considering investing in a multi-channel sound system.

TACET's approach to recording music in what they describe as 'Real Surround Sound' is to take advantage of the whole acoustic space available, and to enhance the listener's musical experience by utilising the possibilities of current multi-channel technology (in this case 5.1) to the full. more...
