front-small-boxset Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this rarity
Undoubtly, the shining star of this recording is the Paganini-Rhapsody, a masterpiece composed by the greatest pianist the world ever saw and whose name I have the honor to use as avatar. A great discovery also was for me is Margrit Weber, a pianist I never heard before.
Also great to have some work by the little known composer Alexander Tcherepnin.

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.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Very 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

If you like what i do, please consider that a little donation would be very appreciate.

  1. Hallo Alf, Thank you for this rare LP transfer. I have this recording but not the original cover. Margit Weber did not make many recordings but she was one of the German top pianists in my school-times. Greetings Trottar

  2. Alf, Just listened to this Gem, what a discovery, is really great! Margrit Weber is fantastic.

    Again many thanks to you and Jean-Luc for this Jewel.
