This album was recorded during a live concert held at the Auditorium Parco della Musica – Sala Petrassi in Rome on November 12th, 2004. Recording and production are done by Giulio Cesare Ricci in collaboration with the National Academy of Santa Cecilia – Foundation.
The great violinist Uto Ughi during the concert played the Guarneri del Gesù violin, ex Grumiaux, masterfully interpreting some of his “masterpieces” such as the Concerto in la min. n.1 per violino e archi BWV 1041 – J.S.Bach, il Concerto in re min. n.4 per violino e Orchestra – N.Paganini and an emotional Meditation da “Thais” per violino e Orchestra – J. Massenet.
The repertoire of this album is also enriched by the Symphony Op. 3 n.1 – C. Bach. The choice of this location was dictated by its particular acoustics which allowed to obtain a very special result.
For this recording Giulio Cesare Ricci used the original tube microphones Neumann U47, U48 and M49 and all its equipment: mike pre-amplifiers, line, digital, microphone and supply cables Signoricci. Recorded in Stereo DSD on Pyramix using dCS A/D and D/A converters. Also for this recording Giulio Cesare Ricci used a “field effect” recording technique, natural sound, without the use of equalizers, no sound expansion and compression systems. With this recording, Giulio Cesare Ricci wanted the listener to live a unique experience: it is as if he were sitting on an armchair positioned in the ideal position of the “Sala Petrassi – Auditorium Parco della Musica”. In this position, the depth, width, and height of the sound are very appreciated.
