    Got it off Amazon.com third party seller. Used but listed as great condition. I’ve spent months hunting this set. Still kick myself for all the times I had it in my cart when it was available easily and didn’t pull the trigger. It taught me a lesson on these historic recordings get them right away or pay more later. If I come across another I’ll let you know ASAP.

    Here is the Japazon profile on both the amazon France and Spain websites. I bought the Parsifal 54 and Gotterdammerung 57 Kna from each one respectively.

    But how did you get 1954? Only a CD from OperaDepot would be available, unless you found a decent old archipel copy.
    Obviously the one the true aficionado needs is the non-existent '55 Parsifal. I'm sure that Bavarian Radio must have a recording languishing in their vaults. They recorded everything at Bayreuth. Why would this be an exception!!

    But why do we need it, is it supposed to be a good one?

    No clue. It might be a complete dud but it's purely because it's the only Knappertsbusch Parsifal for that year that I don't have. I have one for every other year and it offends my sensibilities that I haven't got the set!!

    Picked up a couple of Wagner recordings in Opera Depot's 50% off sale this week one of which is a recording of Lohengrin from Marseille with Janos Furst conducting and Alberto Remedios as Lohengrin. There is no date but given that Furst was MD at the Maseille opera from 1981 to 1990 I'm assuming it is from that period. Anybody have an inkling? Google has been less than illuminating!!

    The other one I got is their free download of Tannhäuser from Covent Garden in 1973 with Jessye Norman as Elisabeth.

    Wotan knows when I'll get around to hearing them

    Looks like December 1983 for the Lohengrin

    Décembre 1983, Lohengrin J. Furst / J. Karpo, L. Rysanek, A. Remedios, D. Mac Intyre, V. Von Halem

    Just finished listening to Turandot, Buenos Aires, 1965 with Nilsson, Caballe and Usonov. Blinding stuff. The audience cheered them to the rafters and deservedly so.

    A shame that Wagner didn't live long enough to complete Turandot...

    Is anybody familiar with this release?

    Rheingold.jpg

    There are a couple of annoying cuts in scene one in this release. These sound as if the source used was vinyl and the record skipped and there is no way that they could be cuts in the performance as the sound suddenly skips in the middle of someone singing to a point later on in the performance. I conclude that the performance was complete and that this issue was badly transferred from a vinyl source or that something happened with the radio broadcast (signal dropped out?) and that part of the recording was chopped out for this release (or the version that this was copied from).

    Does anyone know the reason for this? Is there another version that has the missing segments?

    It's ok, I've solved it. I played it again and this time the disc didn't skip. I guess my player got excited at its first sampling of the Kna '58 Ring!
