What makes you think you should record?
Often we musicians have the desire to make a recording out of thin air and we miss
But what makes you think you should even try to record?
Classical music is a competitive field where you are striving to play the same music other musicians are playing, with a touch of personality while still respecting the composer. So before you even try to make a recording, you have to be absolutely sure you are ready to take on this task full force. This is a great example of the results one can get with hard work, good ideas, and the support of a solid team. If you are lacking any of those three elements, you will be wasting your time.
Therefore, if you are about to start a recording project, make sure you think it through with a team that can help you develop a quality product just like Johanna Röhrig did with her Bach Chaconne and a solid production process like the one done by MICSFILMS.
