This is not an historical recording. Yet mysteriously the music is performed in an interpretation which is historically authentic down to the last detail. The key to this mystery is: the original performer was present at the recent recording session, but not physically: the music is heard on a modern Steinway. Never has music stored in the Welte-Mignon system sounded so "right" or so well. Thanks to TACET′s much-praised recording technique, and because the Welte-Mignon memory system and sound production mechanism have now been newly adjusted for the first time by the leading expert in the field - and are thus able to meet TACET′s requirements. (Welte-Mignon was invented in 1904.) The Welte-Mignon mystery can now speak to us without distortion.

What is "Welte Mignon"?

Fono Forum (08/01/2010):

(...) Was diese Schallplatte so besonders macht, ist, dass bei der Aufnahme ausschließlich Röhren-Technik eingesetzt wurde. (...) Entgegen dem Vorurteil, Röhren klängen warm und weich, hat diese Sechste nichts Romantisierendes oder Fülliges an sich. more...
