The Audiophile Recording Process

The original “Bach in Brazil” sessions took place in 1995, on location at St. John’s Episcopal church in Broad Creek, MD. Recording engineer Cathy Pescevich (Kreplin) chose Microtech Geffel m295 microphones for the project. Her goal was to capture the sound of Gordon’s instrument with unrivaled naturalness and clarity.

Artist Statement

” In my work as a concert musician and music educator, I teach about the aesthetic tools of rhythm, color and composition to audiences and private students alike. In my work as a nationally-recognized photography professional, I teach about lighting and composition in environmental portraiture. For me, such tools are the essence of both music and photography.”
