CD's now available: http://vinylfatigue.blogspot.com/2014/12/schneider-quartet-haydn-now-available.html
To all the visitors to Vinyl Fatigue who found your way here through a web search for the Schneider Quartet Haydn recordings: Thank you. Thank you, too, to all who have supported my Haydn project and have left such encouraging comments. I owe you all an explanation of why I have removed the links to my restorations.
Very recently, after a couple of months of preliminaries, I have begun a project that will see the Haydn Society/Schneider Quartet recordings issued complete, by the current owner of the original tapes, in a commercial CD edition. The result should be superior to what I have been able to achieve here, and it has long been my desire to see such an edition brought forth. I never in my life imagined I would be involved in such a venture, and I feel privileged to be so.
I was not asked to remove the links to my previous work. I felt, however, that leaving them up would be a serious conflict of interest, not to mention a breach of simple etiquette. My primary goal in starting the series on Vinyl Fatigue was to make these fine performances digitally available. It was my hope from the start that a show of interest would encourage making a CD edition. I am deeply gratified that hope will shortly be realized. For me it is a dream come true.
I thank you for your understanding and for your many kindnesses.
