Dacapo Records, founded in 1989, have released more than 450 CD’s, spanning the full spectrum of Danish music from the early Middle Ages to avantgarde electronica. Of particular interest in the context of MK Sound is the fact that Dacapo consistently strive to achieve natural, accurate and spacious sound. For this reason, they hired Timbre Music to produce the recordings at
the NYPO’s home, Avery Fisher Hall in New York. DaCapo is distributed worldwide by the Naxos Group.
Timbre Music is a collaboration between tonmeister Mikkel Nymand and music producer Preben Iwan, both established, skilled audio professionals. Nymand trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, followed by ten years as product specialist with DPA Microphones and extensive freelance work as recording engineer and producer. Iwan was a professional horn player with the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra and later chief sound producer for the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra. He has engineered numerous CD releases for Dacapo and international labels, working with leading orchestras, artists and conductors.
