New Albums Released on Tape: Yarlung Records Catalog

GRAMMY® Award winning Yarlung Records propose a catalog of classical music albums recorded with audiophile techniques and released on several media including  analog tape and 180gr vinyl.


Analog Tape at Yarlung Records

Yarlung Records follow a minimalist approach when capturing music performances: from tube mics (AKG C-24, Neumann U47..) through custom tube preamps, then straight to a two-track recorder (both analog and digital machines for tape, lp and cd releases).

Tapes releases are 1/4” format, half-track and are individually duplicated from masters for each client.

Current list of albums on tapes includes:

  • Janaki String Trio – Debut
  • Elinor Frey & David Fung – Dialogues for ‘cello and piano
  • The Art of the Violin – Petteri Iivonen
  • Antonio Lysy at The Broad – Music from Argentina
