Looks fun!  Can you provide links the audio examples?

I don't disagree, at least not strongly, but recording concert performances from a distance is a different ball of wax in many ways.  And there, I make a big exception for arrays combining X/Y or M/S with spaced pairs!  That combination can provide the best of both worlds if setup in such a way as to work together harmoniously.

Christian, this exists, and you teach it?! SO COOL! Wish I could have been a fly on the wall.

Absolutely agree re: x/y on piano. I'm not sure why, as sometimes I have liked M/S on piano, which in theory is the same at some level of M/S decoding. I would really love to hear your samples.

Here's a cool shootout:

I also sometimes like a pair of NTR's set up like this, though I have stopped trying to lug them outside of Los Angeles.

What are your thoughts for a stereo pair on piano when it's accompanying a soloist? Recently I talked to someone who used MK41's in ORTF right over the hammers and I loved it as accompaniment (which totally surprised me). Of course, it had some reverb added and it was a really nice piano.

PS, would love to hear your samples if you are able to share.

V nice Christian.  What was the group consensus on best capture method?
Btw, my son got his undergrad degree in composition at USC - I got to meet Morten Lauridsen at his graduation concert!

Very cool, Christian! I would also love to hear samples from this; it looks like a very comprehensive test.

The closest thing I have seen before is this:
