This field report narrates the 3D audio capture of solo piano for classical music productions in studio settings. The techniques and decision-making processes described in this field report are based on technical and practical knowledge supported by in-situ evaluations. The purpose of the report is to provide guidance for recording engineers and producers who are creating content for immersive au- dio systems; since many distinct recording scenarios ex- ist, a single technique is generally insufficient to satisfy the technical and aesthetic needs. Optimizing technical and aesthetic objectives during recording sessions is essential for superior craftsmanship in emerging immersive audio systems.
