101 Strings - Romantic Songs of The Sea
In The Sound of Magnificence
The sea in its constantly changing colors and atmoshere, has
always held the heart of the true romantic. It can be serene and
tranquilizing or boisterous and terrifying - but to one degree or
another, it is always in motion - much the same as the spirit of
people fascinated by its beauty and grandeur.
The World´s largest recording orchestra paints us sound picture of the sea, the sky, and the islands that fleck its magnificent expanse. Our orchestral canvas is a haunting portrayal of wave washed beaches, ports of call and breathtaking skies in the Sound of Magnificence - 101 Strings.
The lush magnificence and stereo depth of "101" Strings is due to a combination of factors. First in importance, is the concept of scoring for the strings. The necessity of using 101 strings instruments is to utilize various harmonies and voicings and not weaken the dynamic of quality of any one line when playing counter lines. This is particularly importance with the violins and violas, and creates a wonderful rich channel separation for stereo recording. The listener will note that a times the melody line is in full presence and possibly a full and lovely conter line is being played without sacrificing the full dynamic value of either. Secondly, the original performances have been records under the most exacting audio engineering standards with specially designed microphones with characteristics to compensate for any possible distortion from the tremendous bass frequency response in cello and string bass. Third, and of extreme importance, are the players themselves. They represent the finest musicians in Europe today. There are, in fact, eleven concertmeisters in the first chairs.
