  1. Excuse me … probably a “dumb” question: when I click on FF link I see just one file (44kSeRa​_PP2​_Bou​.rar – 84 Mb). What0s wrong with me?

    Thhanks in advance.


  2. Just listened to it two times. A beautiful and unique rendition, I love it!
    Besides three or four pops somewhere in the middle and in the last part this rip is great. Too bad it’s mono, but you can’t have all the treasures in the world in the palm of your hand… There’s too much goodness already.

    Thank you very much!

    • Hi Black…I know of the pops and some scratch noises in the 2nd part. I tried to eliminate them, but the music turned into very strange…so i attenuated only a little; better to have some light noises instead of destroing the music 😉

      By the way: this is only one of a large donation of vinyls from our friend…there are to come more, much more (and obscure or little known) pianists of the past…many of them from Russia 😉

      • I had the exactly same thought, and I believe you’ve done the right thing.

        And now I can’t wait to see all those precious things! Time to rape some bandwidth =)

  3. Many thanks.

    Yuri Boukoff make one of the greatest LP for Moussorgski, Les Tableaux d’une exposition ( Philips / CBS S 61163).
