My excitement has been extinguished for now...there are plenty of other Tacet SACDs that can be released on DVD-A before we'll ever see new material.
Here's hoping we are wrong!
Hi there "in the round",
With great joy and pleasure we noticed this forum which is a big honour for us! As I am very busy with working on new recordings and multichannel mixes I can not visit this thread as often as I would like to do. Only from time to time I have a look and enjoy what's been written in the meantime. Also there are many topics where I do not want to participate in discussion, in particular everything re. review of our recordings. However there are some questions which must be answered. This time: our release schedule. I am sorry that we started our 10 DVD-A set with the 3 Beethoven discs which are available on SACD already. This was only by hasard! Here is what we plan to release within this year and the next:
Please don't shoot me if we have to change one or two of the positions. But this is definitively what we plan currently. Perhaps it will be even more. The Haydn string quartets will be completed on DVD-A until 2011 which alone are 14 discs. There are plenty of complete Haydns on CD. One of the main reasons to do it was: There is no complete multi-channel version on the market.
The sound carriers might change (I hope not). But the Real Surround Sound multi-channel approach will not disappear. The most encouraging thing about the "TACET thread" is that many listeners are in the same extent infected by the Surround virus as I am. This helps a lot!
