HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Piano Sonatas KV 282, 330, 511, 576 (Ingrid Haebler)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this gem
Direct comparisons between Haebler and Uchida reveal that Haebler possessed a gentler, lyrical style. Whereas Uchida pointedly punctuates every accent, Haebler’s long lyrical lines reveal more of Mozart’s beauty. The differences are obvious from the get-go. Whereas Uchida blazes through some Sonatas (sounding oh so modern) Haebler allows the music to breath. In so doing, Mozart’s musical lines flourish.

Although Uchida’s Mozart is beautiful, I have never understood why Philips replaced almost all of Haebler’s recordings in the present set with Uchida’s when putting together their Complete Mozart Edition. To me Uchida sounds calculated rather than spontaneous, as if she set out to prove that this music is the most delicate, sensitive, and profound music ever written, and this resulted in an intellectual distancing of the music that sets up a barrier between what Mozart wrote and what we hear. To me, listening to Uchida play Mozart is like listening to the music through the equivalent of the gauze filter cinematographers use to denote flashbacks or hide the wrinkles on an aging cast.

Ripping Info


If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
My rips are almost rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Super light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
  • DR-Analisys before converting to Flac
  • Converting Wave -> Flac: Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Artwork: Sony Alpha 350, Epson Perfection V750 Pro, Photoshop CS 5.5
