Manoug Parikian (15 September 1920 – 24 December 1987) was a British concert violinist and violin professor. He was born in Mersin to Armenian parents. He studied in London. Parikian made his solo début in 1947 and led several orchestras – the Liverpool Philharmonic, London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, the Yorkshire Sinfonia from 1976 to 1978 – and was musical director of the Manchester Camerata from 1980 to 1984. He also led the English Opera Group Orchestra between 1949 and 1951, and participated in various Aldeburgh Festival concerts as a chamber musician as well as in opera productions. He was an admired teacher at the Royal Academy of Music. He also championed contemporary composers, many of whom wrote works for him: examples include Thea Musgrave’s Colloquy (1960), Gordon Crosse’s Violin Concerto No. 2, Alexander Goehr’s Violin Concerto (1961–62) and Hugh Wood’s Violin Concerto. Benjamin Britten also composed for Parikian a cadenza to Mozart’s Adagio for Violin and Orchestra K261 in 1951.

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!
