I’ve long wanted to record this beautiful piece, but could never achieve the sound I wanted for this piece. With my recent purchase of the amazing Schoeps CMC6 MK21, however, I think I was able to capture the full intensity, colors and depth of this composition.

La Muerte, composed by Eduardo Sainz de la Maza, is part of the suite Platero Y Yo, inspired by the great Spanish writer and poet Juan Ramón Jiménez.

This video was also featured on the renowned classical guitar blog ThisIsClassicalGuitar, led by great Canadian guitarist Bradford Werner. Thank you!

Recorded with:

Schoeps CMC6 MK21 matched pair / Metric Halo ULN-2 interface

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera / Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Nikon mount / Zhongyi vII Speed Booster
