I know this issue was discussed already, but I’m not happy with the result.
This album was originally released on 2xVinyl and later on 1 CD. To make it fit on the medium, the appended applause was shortened. Part I is 15 sec shorter, but is still the same recording. Part IIb is more than a minute shorter has a separate recording. The difference is audible on both tracks, but I never noticed. In fact I stop listening the moment the music is over. The listening experience is different anyway as you have 3 interruptions if you listen to the concert using Vinyls.
I made the CD version of IIb an “edit of” the Vinyl version, but I’m not happy with it. Usually an edit has a different length of music, not applause. I don’t think it’s a separate recording.
(about a minute of applause remains on the IIb CD version and before that are 10s of silence as no one dares to applaud before he stands from his piano)
