Recorded in Moscow, Russia.
1st recording of Goldberg Variations BWV 988 by T. Nikolayeva.
On the Relief release the recording date is misprinted as '1970'; this misprint pops up everywhere on the internet. Recording is made in Moscow in 1979 and released on Melodiya vinyl in 1980. Nikolayeva does not play any repetitions on the Relief CD (it was edited by the Relief people, this to fit the recording on one single CD I guess). In 1992 JVC Victor Japan released this recording as a 2CD as VICC40126/7, this with all repetitions. Also a sound improvement can be noticed, left hand is more clear, less 'muddy'.
