This is a sensation – You never saw or heard this in your life
Peinemann made only 4-5 recordings – this rare record is Near Mint

Like the recordings of Erica Morini are very rare & expensive, also Edith Peinemann’s are ultra rare to find (in excellent condition).
The only little difference: Peinemann is – IHMO – better.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (CBS) Wendy (Walter) Carlos – The Well-Tempered Synthesizer

well
If you have to own one of her early recordings, this is the one to get. The haunting final Monteverdi piece, with its strange, beautiful, and terrifying electronic vocals is worth the price of admission alone. Perhaps the crown work on this album is Bach’s 4th Brandenburg Concerto, which Glenn Gould once called the most perfect interpretation.

Any discussion that gets hung up on the instrumentation of this record misses that, here, Carlos gets the feeling of Bach’s music nailed, track after track. This is a player on a mission. Note how the material is cleverly sequenced for maximum liveliness and variety…
