An article of concert organist Bernadetta Sunavska published after a real music audio event:
Recording organ music is a special challenge for loudspeakers. The ample acoustics in many church rooms endanger the audibility of quiet and quick passages, whilst the organ’s full sound hopelessly overstrains most speakers. How often has one turned up the volume whilst listening intensely, only to jump up in panic the next moment to kill the volume when the loud sound set in again? There is hardly a recording opposing the live experience of a concert to such extent, which is why to me, listening to recorded organ music is an annoyance rather than enjoyment.
I am pleasantly surprised that these questions did not have to be raised in the first place, as a pair of Axjet speakers recently played back a contemporary organ work of almost one hour. Finally, one could duly enjoy an enormous sound spectrum. Each and every articulatory detail could be heard, from subtle changes in the acoustic colours to vast tone clusters. One had the impression to be right at the source of the resulting sound.
With these speakers I have discovered a whole new dimension of listening (not only when it comes to classic music), and that is something I am absolutely grateful for.
