HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Columbia) Joseph Haydn – Symphonies No. 88 & 104 (Klemperer)

Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this black gold
Otto Klemperer takes Haydn very seriously. While some might find his approach overly deliberate and lacking in vitality and humor, I find it profound. He recognizes Haydn as the great master whom he was. And the orchestral playing is perfectly balanced and extremely beautiful. The Haydn symphony recordings, with outstanding performances under Otto Klemperer’s baton, have been seen as immortal classics ever since their first release on LPs.

Ripping Info


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
