Well, might not be that mic doing it exactly. There's at least one other mic, looks like one of those "stereo shotgun" mics, about 18" off the floor in front of the first row of chairs on the piano side. That may be where the stereo is coming from, and the mic on the stand between them just being used to get some presence? IDK. I'm disturbed that we aren't getting any early reflections from the glass windows behind the performers; we should be. And there's a fair amount of processing going on, some compression, EQ, and reverb being added.

Whoever make the recording was doing a good job. At least I like the results. I just wish we knew more about how it was made. Maybe someone will pipe up and tell us.
