'Mallarme' + Faure are single-channel from the electronic-stereo. Liederkreis LX 3107 additionally auto-de-clicked after vast effort (the surfaces, whilst appearing mint, were stunningly noisy due to inferior matrix processing: now just a subdued trace of 'hash' at side-ends (and sounding superior to Mr Pristine's effort !! mp3 sample - second part is Liederkreis)
October 2016: 24/96 files converted to 24/48 - slight (1.5dB) treble added to 'Liederkreis' - a few ticks removed from 'Sheherazade'..  
Liederkreis:  Not on CD   Two Hebrew Melodies:  Not on CD as stereo.  EMG reviews / Sleeve-notes / "The Times" - obituary 2000 >>>
