Many thanks to our generous friend Jean-Luc for this gem
Aside from Ms. De Larrocha’s eminently superior abilities on the piano, this album is a beautiful testament to her extraordinary gifts. We miss you Alicia, thankfully, you are always here for your most devoted followers. There are but a handful of artists who can claim iconoclastic status as a performer and master of their instruments, Alicia is one. Everything she does is done musically, so she brings out the character of the piece rather than grandstanding.

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!
