Granados: Today Playing His 1913 Interpretations (Discontinued) by Enrique Granados
This is not an historical recording: quite the opposite. Tacets tube-only recording technique, renowned for their crystal clarity and spaciousness, score another triumph here. Yet the music is heard in the original interpretations, accurate to within a hairs breadth. The key to the mystery is that the original performer was present at the recent recording session, but not physically. As if by time machine, the music is heard played on a modern Steinway, without the loss of sound quality usually inevitable with historical recordings. Never has music stored in the Welte-Mignon system sounded so "right" and so well. And because the mechanism of the Welte-Mignon system has recently been meticulously adjusted by the leading expert, Hans W. Schmitz, it is now possible to get to know the interpretations of yesteryear really well - and the results are sometimes unexpected. The Welte-Mignons treasures are only now systematically unveiled - by Tacet - because at last the necessary requirements have been met. The Welte-Mignon "player-piano" and its reproduction mechanism were invented in 1904.

VINYL RECORDSVinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LPThese vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
VINYL REISSUESTypically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
