Latest album released by Symphony Number One. I recorded these tracks from three different concerts during our 2016-2017 season at venues throughout Baltimore city. Features the work of three up and coming composers, including a 55 minute symphony by young composer Nicholas Bentz. Looking ahead at the score of the work, it was one of the first for Symphony Number One to feature a large string section. I decided to go with a microphone array called a Decca Tree - three omnidirectional microphones over the orchestra, positioned in a triangle arrangement around the conductor (Left, Right, and a Center channel). This was employed extensively at Decca Records during the 1950s, and it creates a huge, warm string sound.
