Solid, but not spectacular, pressing

Reviewer: ETKirsch
A solid reissue of a 1969 performance by Yepes. The pressing is good, not great, with some background cackling. Comparing it to the 1978 DG Yepes performance, the sound is a bit deeper and it appears that Yepes was also using a guitar with a deeper sound for this performance. Overall, a solid pressing and performance.

An interesting side note -- after listening to this record, I plopped another DG pressing (Mozart piano concertos) onto the table and was really struck by the superiority of the Mozart pressing. Looked a bit more closely and the Mozart release appears to be a third party reissue under license from DG. DG is definitely a notch below quality-wise.
