Comments:Christopher Heg said:

This ia a remastered stereo version of a mono original recording. The tone is harsh at times, but this version of the Paritas is the most moving I have found. The Chaconne is a masterpiece. I prefer it to many other versions I have heard that are perfectly executed but seem lifeless by comparison. I would appreciate any additional information I can get about this recording.
