Bach: Inside Polyphony - Special Sennheiser Edition

Pianist Christian Grovlen’s album Bach: Inside Polyphony was released at NativeDSD Music a few weeks ago in Stereo and 5 Channel Multichannel DSD and DXD.  Now 2L brings our listeners a different spin on that album with a special Sennheiser Edition of Inside Polyphony. 

This release is available as a music download only - no disc editions (CD, SACD, BD Audio, etc.) are available for purchase.

In the project "Bach: Inside Polyphony" Christian Grøvlen approach the composers rich and moving world from the inside, not only spiritually, but also in pure sound. He set out to color each voice intimately and through the recording process to come as close to the polyphony as possible. With this work he has opened new doors towards the communicative power of the music itself, the understanding of his own piano playing and aspects of his artistry and personality. All in order to present this magnificent music as clearly and honestly as possible for the listener to take part in.

Turning to this new Special Sennheiser Edition, 2L Music tells us about this intriguing new release:
"While recording this album with our regular array of DPA microphones, we also captured the sessions with an additional pair of Sennheiser MKH 800 TWIN mics.

From these dual capsule microphones, we have extracted both a Stereo and a Multichannel 4-Channel DSD and DXD version.  The musical content is identical to the original release, providing a unique opportunity to experience how sonic timbre may affect your musical perception."

-- Morten Lindberg
2L Music, Producer and Recording Engineer
