Product Description

CD96469 Hansel und Gretel, RAI Milano 1957 - Cossotto, Poleri

Here's an audio derived from the recent upload of the 1957 RAI video of "Hansel e Gretel". Many thanks to the uploader for the excellent files. I have extracted the audio in wave form and remastered to optimize the sound (at least to my own taste), and have compressed as flacs. The huge compression ratio reveals the origin of the files as 256 kbps components of the video, but I have avoided the additional lossiness of a second compression after the mastering process by not re-compressing to mp3. The sound turned out rather well.
