Many thanks to our generous friend Jean-Luc for this gem
Other pianists may be able to play the notes as well as she, but who else invests this music with the unmistakable style which is so instantly recognizable as being De Larrocha after hearing her play only a few bars? Is very easy to like De Larrocha; 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!

- Very careful de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removed, never de-noising
