Many thanks to Jean-Luc for continuing the Haydn-Symphonies
Haydn was a remarkable composer. He has yet to be discovered by most listeners…I mean, REALLY discovered and relished. For after all, as the Kapellmeister to Prince Nicholas Esterhazy for so much of his lifetime, Haydn had to create entertainment for his Prince and his “occasions”. So Haydn wrote the music, repaired the instruments, saw to it his musicians were happy, and kept Prince Nicholas totally enthralled. For recreation Haydn would go on a royal hunt, a sport he dearly loved and which shows up in his music…

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!
