Details

Half-Speed Mastered on 180g Vinyl Double LP!

Recorded in the church of Stella Maris, Sopot, Poland in 2005 and 2006, the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra are conducted by Wojciech Rajski in performing Beethoven's 1st, 2nd & 8th symphonies.

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.
