  1. Thank you! I have some Pires from a Philips collection called Great Pianists Of The 20th Century, but I seldom go to CD rips anymore. I am spoiled by the vinyl sound!

  2. What a find, Steve: thanks to Jean Luc for sharing it!
    Such precise technique, and not in a hurry, but contemplative, as well as musical.
    Great stuff. Thank you.

  3. Thanks THENIGHTOWL, excellent. It sounds better than CDs Brilliant Classics. It has the other 7 LPs? It would be a delight to hear them.
