It is well-known that musicians very often sit in a circle in TACET's recordings. With this layout, they don't just hear each other, they can also see each other. This means that the musical exchanges between the musicians are simpler and better. And it is easier to achieve a natural-sounding recording, not only in TACET Real Surround Sound but also in stereo.
But is it even possible for an orchestral recording? And without a conductor? We were intrigued by the question and so decided to pursue it.

The answer? It does indeed work - in fact very well! Our video shows that very clearly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pTFXBzz6WE.

At the very least, a layout like this expresses the equality of all the participants. The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra puts down a spicy performance of two of Mozart's bubbliest symphonies: the "Prague" and the "Linz". A big thank you to the musicians of the NPhO and to Gordan Nikolic who took on this successful venture with great enthusiasm.

Audio 11/2018 (11/01/2018):

Kreisförmige Sitzordnung, gemeinschaftlicher Spirit: Fürs Label TACET braucht das Netherlands Chamber Orchestra um Konzertmeister Gordan Nikolic keinen Dirigenten als Showman vom Dienst. Klappt das? Und wie! Unglaublich, mit welcher Hochspannung die Niederländer scheinbar abgehörte Mozart-Klassiker zu neuem Leben erwecken. more...

A new release coupling of two of Mozart’s most popular symphonies in multi-channel SACD would appear to be unremarkable, even when performed by such a fine body of musicians as the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra directed by their long time musical director Gordan Nikolić. more...
