Delos used two Scheops 221B omni-directional microphones in a basic stereo placement to achieve a recording of optimum clarity and natural balance. The orchestra was positioned left to right of the conductor: first violins, violas, celli, second violins and bass behind celli. The harpsichord was placed center and the soloist stood somewhat right of center to give the desired antiphonal effect with the concertmaster (left) for sections of the concerti where this balance lends excitement and clarification to the phrases which are tossed back and forth between the two violinists.

Violinist Elmar Oliveira plays his Stradivarius 1731 for this recording, recorded by Marc Aubort.
