‘Yehudi Menuhin'

Neumann M49

On 21-24 April 1958 in Studio One, the Neumann M49 was used to capture violin prodigy Yehudi Menuhin’s violin while collaborating with renowned Hungarian/British pianist Louis Kentner.

This quintessential orchestral mic was not only used on many Menuhin sessions, but also for such recordings as Sir Thomas Beecham’s ‘Beethoven Mass’ where it was chosen for voila, cello, woodwind, and as the main orchestra pair.

It is not limited to orchestral sessions, however. Our head of audio products Mirek Stiles remembers the mic being used to record Nick Cave’s vocals for ‘No More Shall We Part’ in 2000.
