GENUIN-Portrait and CD in the magazine AUDIO TEST and interview in Concerti

15.12.2017: The magazine AUDIO TEST is getting in the spirit of the Advent season—with the "most beautiful classical pieces for Christmas" by GENUIN. Our Christmas sampler "The First Noël" was so popular with the editors that the magazine's 8th edition of 2017 was accompanied by a CD.

Readers can also learn a lot about GENUIN's company history: on three pages, the report tells the story of its beginnings in Detmold, the move to Leipzig, and today's wide-ranging cooperations of GENUIN classics and the GENUIN recording group.

AUDIO TEST sums it up: "The Leipzig label wouldn't be a fourfold winner of the 'Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik' and 'ECHO Klassik' if it didn't live up to its name. Because when you listen to this CD you will notice that the pieces are of excellent sound quality and authentic—just genuine."

Hard work that pays off

The intensive collaboration between sound engineer and singers is the focus of the article "Mit viel Fingerspitzengefühl" ("With a great deal of sensitivity") in the magazine Concerti. As part of a six-part series on the subject of voice, GENUIN sound engineer Holger Busse reveals what is really important when recording with singers.

"With GENUIN, our aim is to get as close as possible to the sound of the voice and to reproduce it as accurately as possible," states Holger Busse. This is hard work, but it's worthwhile, writes Concerti, "if you hold a successful album in your hands, which not only the singer but also the sound engineer can be proud of."
