Maurizio Pollini, who passed away recently, was regarded as one of the best pianists of the last decades. His Chopin interpretations also set standards - including the recording of the 24 Préludes which has been a cult favourite since its first release in 1975. As part of The Original Source Series, the album is now being re-released on vinyl, with a side split different to the original release for audio quality reasons.
For its 125th birthday, Deutsche Grammophon started releasing legendary recordings with highest sound standards: The audiophile vinyl series The Original Source presents outstanding recordings from the 1970s in a whole new sound quality. For this, the renowned Emil Berliner Studios have remastered and edited the original four-track tapes in 100% analog quality (AAA) using technologies developed specifically to produce the series. The sonic differences to the original releases are considerable: greater clarity, more subtleties and improvements in frequency response, while at the same time less background noise, distortion and compression allow for an audiophile listening experience like never before.
On 180g vinyl records and in a deluxe gatefold edition with original covers and lyrics, the copies of this series are released limited and numbered, accompanied by additional photos and facsimiles of the recording logs and band boxes, and an article explains the exact technical background.
