Many thanks to our friend ectudor for this beauty
Until some days ago I firmly believed, there were no other great baritones in history of operatics than Tito Gobbi and Sherrill Milnes. Thank to our friend ectudor I found now, there is a 3rd baritone-God: Mr. Herlea from Romania. Thank you very much.

Ripping Infos


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.
I reinvest all donations in maintenance of my rig, for purchasing cleaning solutions and, most important of all, purchasing of new vinyls.

  1. Stracciari was… listen to his recitativo after the famous cavatina (complete Barbiere recorded for ‘La voce del padrone’).
    that was the way it was sung before the war.

  2. Nicolae Herlea is indeed incredible! Thanks again to Rach & Ectudor for this one & also for the full Traviata with Virginia Zeani, Ion Buzea & Nicolae Herlea published here on May 6th.

    • Aber klar, mein Freund….of course I mentioned only the Gods and only from my subjective POV. Everybody has his personal gods…but I wanten to be mentioned only three 😀
      If I could, I would make them all to Gods.
