"Take Franck" - The production process of a complete recording
Authors: Julia Kesch and Sophie von Jena
Over wine and organ sound: this is how Carsten Wiebusch came up with the idea of a complete recording of the organ works of César Franck. But the road to the release of the album takes several years and requires a lot of planning. On which organ does the piece sound best? What are the dynamics of the recording? And who can mix the pieces?
The most beautiful moment, "holding the finished CD in my hands", as Carsten Wiebusch describes it, is now imminent. The feature by Julia Kesch and Sophie von Jena accompanies you through the production process of this project of Carsten Wiebusch's heart.
"1990 was the 100th anniversary of Franck's death, and I remember very well that we spent that evening with some fellow students and a few bottles of wine at a large, romantic organ and played our way through all the great works, just for fun." (Carsten Wiebusch, performer)
