Nelson Symphony Orchestra

Written by Bickerton Bob on . Posted in News


If I was asked ‘what is the ultimate instrument to record?’ I would have to answer the symphony orchestra. For several years now I have recorded the Nelson Symphony Orchestra concerts in the beautiful acoustics of the main auditorium at the Nelson School Of Music.

The technique used is fairly standard for orchestral recording, an ORTF pair of Neumann TLM193 microphones with omnidirectional Neumann KM183s as outriggers and the occasional spot mic for soloists. It’s always a pleasure to record these concerts and we release a ‘best of’ double album at the end of each year.
