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!
