HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Decca) Domenico Scarlatti, Antonio Soler – Piano Sonatas (De Larrocha)


Many thanks to our generous friend Jean-Luc for the vinyl
This is a classic recording, both in terms of the performance and the recorded sound itself…AdL’s radiance is captured perfectly. The two composers on this record are great Baroque voices from Spain and Italy, all of whom write to ADL’s strengths. She plays them at perfect tempi, with agility, rhythmic elan, power and beauty. Soler may be the least well known bur does not deserve to be, an early voice from Larrocha’s Spain.

Ripping Info

Monitoring

A few words about the way i’ve been cleaning vinyl records and post-processing rips, since summer 2017: After washing and recording the vinyl, I use a kind of mixed cleaning of the rip, which consists of mostly manual rather than automatic de-clicking, (the latter only on unimportant passages, such as end of the groove, beginning and end of the songs, applause, speaking). I often leave the rips almost rough, de-clicking only the silences between the tracks. Never de-noising or/and EQ, as unfortunately some do. I prefer to hear a bit of quiet noises of the clean groove, that contain something of the music, rather than generate clinically clean files that may, eventually, sound a bit dead. If you do not agree, do not download my rips and buy instead digital files or CDs.
When I listen to music I “don’t hear” any noise: I enjoy the music 😀
I do not make rips for headphones!

  • Software: iZotope RX 5 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.18
  • Very careful de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removed, never de-noising
  • DR-Analisys
  • Wave 32/192(32/384) —> Flac 24/96 & 24/192: Twisted Wave 1.18
