The recordings which are used here are taken directly from old vinyl records; there are therefore certain faults and deficiencies which we are sure that you will forgive, since the purpose of these Synchronised Schemes is not that of doing business with any particular instrumental version, but of showing the user how to follow the course of the musical compositions, helped by certain rules or explanations where each and every one of the rhythms of the score is reflected.
