I recorded myself giving a virtual “lunchtime” concert on Sunday and basically all that I did in post was to set markers, gaps and LUFS level. There are no repeats as I simply played through with ornamentation and embellishment from the beginning. As the final track, I included one of my favorite “solo” works that never finds it way onto the so-called complete Bach keyboard editions. It might also be the first French Suites recording on a virginal? Pitch level is A=392 and Werckmeister III tuning.
The artwork is my own and all fonts on the cover and in the booklet are open source (I hope!). Recorded at 48kHz/24-bit using Pianoteq directly as audio into Ardour and mastered in Mixbus 32C to -16 LUFS momentary max, 48kHz/16-bit. I think that’s everything!
EDIT: I switched out the Virginal for the Musica Barocca soundfont and used two Dragonfly reverbs to fashion an instrument that is halfway between a lautenwerck and clavichord. The album is now c. 15 minutes longer…This has been a bit of a test album! Next up, the English Suites!
