A Vinyl/LP is required for performance, this can be hired via Zinfonia or via mail to email@example.com.
Sound files are played from a turntable located in front of the choir, visible for the audience, with loudspeakers on either side of the choir. The vinyl records, side A, B and C, are available from the publisher. Three singers from the front row take turns operating the records, played back at 45 rpm. The turntable should be of professional standard, Technichs 1200-series or similar. Fine-tune running speed to ensure playback in concert pitch. (Technichs has a slider for this purpose, other models may have a knob). Please contact Edition Wilhelm Hansen regarding the vinyl records for performance.
However, my first meeting with Schubert's music was not in a concert hall, but listening to an LP somewhere in my teens. And the format of the vinyl record plays an important role also in this work: As the recording technology of the 20th century transformed our way of listening, the intimate listening situation was no longer the house concert of Schubert's time, but your own living room; maybe with Dietrich Fischer Dieskau on the stereo, singing Schubert's songs in private for you alone, accompanied by a pianist. In Schubert Singt II the piano plays a part in the form of a fragment taken from one of Schubert's most popular songs. This piano-fragment is transformed and pressed on vinyl-records operated by the singers on stage. In the meeting with the choral voice, it makes Schubert sing in yet another way.
