Some shots taken from backstage ahead of the live recordings of this weekend’s concerts.
Also, next week look out for some video footage of the recording process from Bob Lauver – he’s been spotted a number of times roaming around the backstage area with his camera…
and the Heinz Hall Green Room, converted into a temporary recording studio for the producers from PentaTone ~~>
<~~The mixing desk in the recording studio – notice the labels below each channel (white rectangular button). They are used to control levels on the microphones that are picking up different sections of the orchestra.
A close-up on one of those microphones hanging above the stage~~>
<~~ and a view of the Heinz Hall auditorium from stage. If you look closely you can see the suspended microphones – some of which will be picking up ‘ambient audience’ noise… Yes, if you come to Heinz Hall, your loud ‘Bravo’ may just make it on to one of our recordings
More pictures to come soon!
