Best version of Rodrigo Concierto d’Aranjuez?

    I’m a huge fan of this classical guitar music but my EMI Version of this CD (Narciso Yepes) has a lot of background noise in the quieter pieces. It is very disconcerting

    Can anyone recommend a high quality CD recording? Vinyl suggestions also welcome but I’m keen to find a decent CD recording

    I have Narciso Yepes but the CD has a lot of background noise. I’m looking for a high quality pressing as well as performance

    I didn't read the opening post, sorry. The sound here seems OK to me

    +1 for the John Williams recording.

    The Miles Davis version is excellent too!

    There are many fine performances but Romero with Marriner is a classic and still up there IMO.

    The question I am asking relates to quality of pressings rather than quality of the performer/ance
