The Knitting Factory was a venue in New York City that had a policy where bands were not allowed to record their own sets. They could only pay the venue to record for them. The rumor is that this album by the double-trio of Borbetomagus (truly one of the top three two-saxophones-and-guitar bands in all of New York) and Voice Crack (Swiss electronics duo + Knut Remond of 16-17 and UnknownmiX) refused to play along with that bullshit, so they discreetly recorded their own set and put it out with this puffery: “Recorded live at Carnegie Recital Hall, New York on May 26, 1994”, hence the bloated faux-classical title. Which is very funny. The music is blistering as you might expect.
