From the very outset, our main field of activity has been classical music, particularly works for large orchestra, but also solo performers, chamber music and choral works. What they all have in common is that they are always recorded on location in natural spaces. The LIVING CONCERT SERIES embodies in a particular way the basic thinking behind the ACOUSENCE “labelphilosophy“. The audio media of this series are as a rule recorded under live conditions. The natural spontaneity of the concert situation, combined with our well-honed recording techniques, which can communicate those minutest of nuances that are so fundamentally important particularly for the atmosphere and emotional impact, provide you with your own very special "concert experience".
