My 78 Transfer of "Paganini Rhapsody" is on Collectors Corner
APR 7004 (2LP's 1987) Transferred by Bryan Crimp from shellacs + EMI's previous tape copy transfer of PC1: the 78 matrices then destroyed..
Bryan Crimp's transfer of PC1 retains a 'tape editing flaw' in mvt.3 (which I've removed - amongst much editing..) but, Strangely, Mr Pristine's 'new release' has the same fault (subdued, but still audible despite all the 'processing': which can make Moiseiwitsch sound like he's playing on a Pub Piano in the famed acoustics of the XR ConvoluteGebouw..).
Over on The Music Parlour BBC 'live' - Delius PC - Rachmaninov PC2 - Beethoven PC5, etc 1955 EMI Rachmaninov PC2 + Paganini Rhapsody, etc
