  1. Hello, Steve,
    Glad to see you back from vacation; missed ya!
    And thanks for the Milstein and PSO. They made some good stuff back in the 50s.

  2. Thx big time Night Owl !!! You’re doing the heavy lifting while the mighty, mighty Rach-man is quiet. He’ll be back but in the mean time this sounds like a real analogue winner @ 24/192.

    God bless.

  3. I just want to say thank you for this. I’ve listened to it so many times I’m wearing out the arm on my hard drive. It sounds much sweeter and bigger than the CD version. Seriously, thank you.

  4. Thank you so much NightOwl! I love the sound of the violin on this one and the Szeryng Brahms Concerto: leaps out of the speakers so naturally! I really hope you will do your magic on more violin, viola or cello recordings! Thank you again!
