Rare HD-Vinyl (Mono) 24/96 (Erato) Johannes Brahms – Les Valses (Sebök)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Trottar for this rarity
The waltzes were written for piano four hands (i.e. duet), and were also arranged for piano solo by the composer, in two different versions – difficult and simplified. The three versions were published at the same time, and sold well, contrary to the composer’s expectations. The waltzes were written while the composer lived in Vienna, a city where he would permanently settle in 1872. They were intended as a tribute to the waltz dance form which had become especially fashionable in his adopted city. György Sebők was an internationally renowned pianist and Distinguished Professor at the Indiana University School of Music in Bloomington, Indiana, USA. He was known worldwide as a soloist with major orchestras, a recitalist on four continents, a recording artist, and for his master classes, visiting professorships, and the Swiss music festival he organized in Ernen.

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

  1. I don’t think I have ever heard, seen, or seen reference to this recording. I look forward to this rare treasure. Thank you for sharing this.


  2. Alf, let me make a short addition to György Sebök: He was a long time the best piano partner Janós Starker had. Some famous recordings still exists. Greeting Trottar.
