Not as good as you would wish...
…given how great that performance of the Piano concerto is. Part of it appears to be mono (mostly the cadenza) and unfortunately, the tape shows its age. Unfortunately, that is to be expected more than sixty years later. I'm not that enthusiast about the ouverture, but it has to do with the work itself not being that great. I don’t think that transfer is a strong improvement compared to the CD release which is very good for both works I am however thankful for its existence given the artistic value of the Piano concerto, which is by far the best I know.
Sorry, sonics not up to scratch
Despite stormingly good performances of these evergreen Tchaikovsky favourites, I'm afraid I can't recommend this because of the sonics, which drive me out of the room. That's a great pity, and doesn't reflect the quality of the Shaded Dogs.
Great analog Recording and Transfer to Digital World
Gilels is probably the best interpret of the Tchaikovsky 1. Piano Concerto. His very powerful and at the same time incredibly sensitive kind of playing is absolutely ingenious. I know this recording since many years and have this recording on CD. The sound quality of HDTT DSD Files is much better than CD. In some loud moments You can listen the typical tape saturation effects. This is authentically sound of reel tapes. I can strong recommend this recording.
