In Reply to: RE: Which recordings would you like to see sonically revisited? posted by jimbill on March 18, 2017 at 22:14:15
Leinsdorf, Maazel or Mravinsky?
I usually prefer original issues over most reissues but it would be nice if someone can improve many of Richter's older recording.
Here's my wish list:
I have Richter's all 4 known recordings of Schumann's Piano Concerto but figures, the one I like most is the worst sounding set with Alexader Gauk/Moscow Radio Orchestra. :/ I also have a few different reissues of this but every one of them are turkeys.

Got it for $9 from HDTT. Comes in just a paper sleeve. I'll just stick it in the RCA jewel box and give the original to my daughter.
I've an original vinyl copy on RCA, but was always puzzled that Rainer/Gilels set from a few years prior to Richter/Lendsdorf sounds so much better. I assume same engineer worked on it but obviously a different venue.
The sound quality of that is so bad I wonder if anything can save it. How about Haskil/Otterloo/Hague Philharmonic instead?
