  1. Outstanding sound! That is one superbly well built and well tuned instrument. Your hardware really brought this record out. Thank you!

    Note: there is a loud squeak at 1:29 of A3, doesn’t sound like it came from the vinyl.

  2. I had never heard of Puchelt; what a pleasant surprise he is, and your work on his album is exquisite. A most happy THANKYOU for this album. A to Trottar as well: splendid gift.

  3. Alf you should have Puchelts Beethoven Sonats with Christiane Edinger in your
    “Archiv”. By the way Gerhard Puchelt was the first pianist in my life I heard in 1948 during a Tour
    with the the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under the young Sergiu Celibidache. This was the time when Furtwängler was not allowed to conduct the BPO. Trottar.

  4. Lieber Alf , ich habe mich geirrt, sie spielen nicht Beethoven Sonatas sondern die 2 Hindmith Sonaten. Vielleicht findest Du die LP doch noch. Gruß vom Grippekranken

  5. the sonatas have been mixed up, so the a- side is actualy the b-side ie sonata no 10/KV330 and vice versa.

    discogs earliest release is 1958

    thx db
