The Indianapolis prides itself on artistic excellence in every aspect of the competition. Ultimo Productions represents that excellence and once again, we were privileged to have Andreas Klein serve as the official recording engineer for the 11th Quadrennial Competition. Andreas’ vast knowledge of recording, deep understanding of the repertoire, and his respect for the artists were on display each and every day as he captured the artistry of each performance for the global audience to enjoy!
Glen Kwok / Executive Director, International Violin Competition of Indianapolis
Every aspect of The Indianapolis is held to the highest artistic standard. Ultimo Productions is no exception as we were privileged to have Andreas Klein serve as the official recording engineer for the 10th Quadrennial Competition. With his vast knowledge of recording, his personal understanding of the repertoire being performed, and his respect for the artists, Andreas proved to be our ideal partner. Beautifully capturing the artistry of 38 violinists and their pianists over 17 days, Andreas was an incredible collaborative member of our artistic team. His flexibility during an intense and ever changing schedule during the competition was a testament to his outstanding professionalism.
Glen Kwok / Executive Director, International Violin Competition of Indianapolis 2018
Andreas Klein produced a rich, full-voiced, professional recording of our 70th Season commission: a Triple Concerto for Solo Violin, Cello and Piano with String Orchestra. A difficult task under the best of conditions; more so working in the difficult acoustic of our Concert Hall.The group of students working with him for the week received a hands-on, up-close overview of what is involved in professional recording and production.

The Lake Placid Sinfonietta will be celebrating its centennial in 2017. In preparation for this landmark event, we have been recording performances for a CD since 2012. We have had the great fortune to have found Andreas Klein of Ultimo Productions. His recordings and meticulous editing of these orchestral performances have been of the highest quality, which can be attributed to his technical skills as a sound engineer and to his sensitivities as a performing artist himself. We very much look forward to our ongoing collaboration with Dr. Klein in producing our centennial celebration CD.
Claude Roland / Centennial Committee, Lake Placid Sinfonietta (New York)
His services were extremely reliable, and – as a fellow classical musician – he was very insightful in matching our artistic vision and aesthetic for the sound and overall production.
Salvatore Di Vittorio / Music Director, Chamber Orchestra of New York
The recordings that he produced were of the highest quality and truly reflected the artistic ability and standards of our orchestra.
