    Another causality of the Kleiber temperament was a proposed recording of Beethoven's Emperor concerto with the pianist Michelangeli, who was himself not exactly lacking in temperament, because one of the cellists asked Michelangeli: "Maestro, what speed would you like?" Kleiber walked out and was on the aircraft back to Munich in no time at all.

    I can understand it a bit, Kleiber and Wozzeck......not sure it's the right match for such a sensitive person.

    As he'd conducted it before in the opera house one might suppose recording it was alright for him.

    Absolutely no mention of this in Osborne's biography. There was a failure to record La Traviata together. Is your source mixing these up?
    I believe this is mentioned in the "great recordings of the century" edition of the Beecham Carmen.

    However Callas singing Olympia sounds like a very strange idea, was it that her name just popped out in a draft stage of the project? Even more unlikely seems Lohengrin, she didn't speak german, and she didn't find Wagner very interesting.

    In fact. In the booklets of both recordings (Great Recordings of the Century editions) appears the data. Callas was full time with the Carmen sessions when the project of Les Contes with Cluytens was offered to her

    There's a rumour that DG did a Fidelio with Studer and Hepner, but it was never released as Hepner also recorded the opera with Solti.

    Any idea if this is true?

    Any idea if they actually started recording the Studer Strauss operas planned?

    There is no evidence for this.
    "Speaking of which, what eventually became the Leinsdorf London based “Walküre” recording, started out leveraging Karajan’s Vienna Ring. In 1961 it was announced that RCA would release a “Die Walküre” with Karajan conducting the Vienna Philharmonic and featuring Nilsson, Vickers, Rysanek and Hotter as soloists."

    No idea about the Fidelio. About the Strauss recordings with Studer, it is said that maybe they started with Arabella, but they didn't guarantee anything either. Only the members of the orchestra and the involved singers know it.

    Not likely. DG recorded a video with Heppner from the Met, and he recorded Florestan for BMG with Colin Davis.

    Any idea if they actually started recording the Studer Strauss operas planned?
    Which label? She recorded Salome for DG, the Empress and Chrysothemis for EMI. No idea whether there were plans for the Marschallin, Ariadne, Daphne, or the Countess in Capriccio. Alas, her voice went south fairly early.

    That's right, sorry the Fidelio was not with Solti, but Davis. Solti conducted the opera in Salzburg with Studer and Hepner and maybe DG wanted to release that live recording, but couldn't because Hepner had already recorded it. (The Met DVD was from later on and so hadn't been made yet.)

    Of the Strauss operas I think I heard that Arabella and the Marschallin were planned by DG, but Capriccio seems plausible as well.

    I could have sworn there was an "Otello" planned for Corelli but never made.
