Rimma Sushanskaya conducts The Locrian Ensemble of London with Fiona Kelly on flute and Jean Kelly on harp.
"For many of our albums I have been using 3 microphones used in a "Decca Tree" array to capture the main stereo image. Recently I have been experimenting with a Neumann Binaural Head. Although normal stereo sounds great on headphones, I have found that when using the head, the effect can become almost three dimensional. I have therefore decided to create a series of albums for headphone listeners. This is our second release and I hope when listening, you will be transported to St. Martin in The Fields in London, enjoying the fun of Mozart by Candlelight!" - Mike Valentine
St. Martin in The Fields, because of its wonderful acoustics, has become an iconic concert hall and recording venue. It's amazing to think that Mozart himself played in the church in the 1760s. If he was alive today I hope that he would enjoy this binaural recording!
