A must for Martha's lovers
on 3 July 2016
I of course love Martha and have a lot of cds with her performances, but I wanted to have her first recording on vinyl. This is an amazing performance from 1965, the year when the young Argentinian piano player won the Chopin Prize and amazed the musical world with her interpretation of the Piano Sonata #3 and some mazurkas. A so nostalgic, so beautiful and so powerful recording!
Three stars because though the vinyl came sealed, I was surprised by the dirty accumulated in the grooves. After playing the A side of the LP on the stylus there was an impressive quantity of muck. I had to stop and to clean the garbage for my stylus is an expensive micro one. There are also unpleasant crackling and popping due to electrization. Some manufacturers less famous than Warner produce clean vinyls, so it is an enigma for me how this one could be of a so bad quality.
