We have here a collection of sonatas for gamba and violoncello which are handsomely played and recorded with a precision which never enters into the territory of the dry and clinical. Telefunken as a recording operation seems to have been 5-10 years ahead of the competition up until the 1960s and was still quite delightful up until the digital age.
The label for the second side is not actually silver and black -- I simply incorrectly scanned it in black and white and didn't feel like going back and re-doing it. This delight is 50 years old and in great shape inside and out.
The equipment utilized in this transfer include an AT LP-1240 turntable, an AT 440-MLb cartridge, a vintage late 1970s completely and professionally refurbished Pioneer receiver (with newly replaced capacitors and other electronics where needed), and a small digital portable recorder capable of recording at 24/96 resolution. Software included Audacity, careful use of ClickRepair, and xAct (to convert and compress files).
