Many thanks to our generous friend Jean-Luc for the vinyl
Although she was best known for her performances of Spanish music, the great pianist Alicia de Larrocha (1923 – 2009) also was a renowned performer of Mozart and Beethoven. This is a fine recording to hear in itself for those wanting this particular combination of Mozart and Beethoven piano works. The recording also is valuable for admirers of Alicia de Larrocha, and it helps to expand and preserve her legacy.

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!
