Direct to disc: this term represents the ultimate in analogue recording quality. With no intervention and without any post-processing, the sound is cut directly into a master disc at the moment of the performance – the basis for a vinyl release of unique tonal authenticity. This complex, end-to-end analogue process is rarely used in today's digital age. It has now been used for the first time in 70 years to record a performance by the Berliner Phiharmoniker. On the programme are the symphonies of Johannes Brahms, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.
The Brahms cycle in the direct to disc process is only on release in the Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings vinyl edition and not on any digital medium. Corresponding to Johannes Brahms’s year of birth, it is limited to 1833 copies worldwide.
