More than 1.000 releases originate from the LOFT. The recording studio at the LOFT uses the concert room with its excellent acoustics. For this reason we are able to record concerts with studio quality. For studio productions, the concert room and the foyer can be divided into three separate recording rooms, still allowing for adequat eye contact.
The large Steinway D Grand Piano is at the forefront, hence the great number of Piano CDs which have been recorded at the LOFT.
