Lo Zingaro Barone e` qui` diretto dal "Barone" Lovro von Matacich, che rinuncio` al titolo, per amicia con Tito (leader Jugoslavo)
Fu una delle ultime presenze a Milano dell'allora ottantenne Von Matacich; vi tornera un paio di anni dopo  (in carrozzina) per dirigere Una Messa da Requiem di Verdi.
Si Tratta di una esecuzione dell'operetta omonima, con qualche taglio e l'inserimento di spiegazioni di Ernesto Calindri.
E' da notare: La Rai allora eseguiva i suoi concerti e opere in pubblico, con ingresso gratuito e l'obbligo del silenzio durante la trasmissione, che talvolta
avveniva in diretta o in differita di pochi giorni.
La Rai (Ente di Stato) trasmetteva tutto in radiofonia, e i successivi accordi discografici, non hanno mai tolto la denominazione di "dominio pubblico" delle trasmissioni; anche in forza del canone di abbonamento radiofonico che si pagava, e tutt'ora si paga.
Inoltre (le registrazioni Rai iniziate il 9 maggio 1931 da Roma) con l'opera Cristoforo Colombo diretta da Santarelli, seguita via via da altre sedi: Torino, Napoli e MIlano,durarono fino agli anni 1992-93 quando soppresse le quattro sedi concentro` la sua attivita` nella sola sede di Torino.
L'archivio Rai e` immenso (una media di 100 titoli all'anno) e contempla direttori e cantanti di tutto il mondo) vi rimando al libro ERI edizioni Rai,
50 anni di opera lirica edito nel 1981 e scritto a due mani da Giorgio Gualerzi e Carlo Marinelli Roscioni.
Ovviamente tratta solo di opera, l'operetta, i concerti gli oratori e le riprese televisive, non sono stati pubblicati.

Sarka (pronounced SHarka) is Fibrich's most frequently recorded and
performed opera (if we can call one miserable production in Plzen
during the last 15 years frequent). Three pretty good versions have
made it to LP or CD, but this one (offered here in sound recently
dusted off and digitalized by Czech Radio engineers) has never been
available in any format except as a radio broadcast. Perhaps Czech
singing went into decline during the 1970s, but you can still hear
trails of glory here. Krombholc was an outstanding conductor. Mi'kova'
and Spisar are not famous but merit interest. In smaller roles you
can hear old favorites such as Haken, Tikalova' and Tattermuschova'.

This opera is based on an exciting story from old Czech mythology.
Imagine Walkyries undertaking a radical program of female
emancipation, out to murder every man they can find. Except that
Sarka meets Ctirad, and .... Strong stuff.

This is not the Gala recording and it's also no copy of the previously
available commercial live(was it GAO from which Gala may have copied
it). The announcement of the concert is still at the beginning of the
recording.I got it with the date 1 October 1971, I don't know if this
date is right, but I think so. It's probably an archive recording from
the radio. The commercials had the date 16 July 1972, but they are
used to copy wrong dates and places from one label to the other.

Branibori v Czechach by Smetana - Prague 1948 	  Message List  

"The Brandenburgers in Bohemia" were Smetana's first work for the
stage. I know some photos from productions at Praha but have never
seen it given at a German stage or elsewhere in western Europe. Maybe
the reason is the for nowaday ears very nationalistic libretto. The
story is from Czech history at the end of 13th century, when the
troups of Otto of Brandenburg had occupied Bohemia and gave terror to
Praha and thecountryside. But it's interesting that the real bad guy
is not a Brandenburg but a Czech, fraternising with the enemy for his
personal benefit. Maybe one of our Czech members can tell us if
there was a special reason for librettist Karel Sabina to give him a
German name (Tausendmark).

The recording was made at Radio Praha in 1948 under the baton of
Karel Ancerl with a cast of distinguished Czech singers led by Beno
Blachut.
I recorded it two years ago via internet from Czech radio and for
that and the age of the recording it's real good sound. I apologize
not to give the correct signs (Hacek and so on) to the names, but my
last try came out as a nice collection of hieroglyphs.

Janacek Aus einem Totenhaus Holland Festival 25 June 1954. Live

Complete opera in one zip file (m4a), one track per act:
http://rapidshare.com/files/21259042/Janacek_Totenhaus_Holland_Festival_1954.zip



Sung in German, this is the first complete recording of From The House
of the Dead, and it is the only commercial set of the whole opera in
the edition by Bretislav Bakala and Osvald Chlubna. For anyone
unfamiliar with this edition (made just after Janacek's death by two
of the composer's pupils who believed the work needed completing), the
end of Act 3 is where the real surprise happens. But throughout the
opera there are differences from the editions by Kubelik, Nosek, and ?
especially ? by Mackerras with Tyrrell, all of which attempt to
restore Janacek's original intentions. So here we have a fascinating
curiosity, performed with great dedication and enthusiasm, I think.

Live performance from Paris in 1952 - Simoneau, Zareska et al. with
Stravinsky on the podium. Cast list and details enclosed in file.

---------------

Hello all,
From a France-Musique FM-Radio broadcast ca. in the mid-1990th here is
a very rare document of Bizet´s Carmen ? not the whole opera, but
large excerpts - from an almost illegal Radio-production in Marseille
on Nov. 9th 1942. Henri Goraieb who presents this material, cf.
add-file, explains a bit the adventouros circumstances of the
realization of this performance and gives also details about the
original records (pirales) and tapes and their restauration together
with Jean-Francois Pontefrac sound-engineer. As for the brilliant
cast, well there is nothing to add further:

G. Cernay (Carmen)
R. Berthaud (Don Jose)
G. Guillamat (Micaela)
L. Lovano (Escamillo)
C. Verneuil (Frasquita)

Orchestre National de France
E.-D. Inghelbrecht

Marseille, 9.xi.1942


4 mp3-files each containing all excerpts of one acte incl presentation
by Henri Goraieb. This is all what has been broadcast.

This very rare ballet opera was broadcasted saturday on Radio Vltava.
The singers were all "no names" to me, mostly being members of the
Brno opera company I think where Frantisek Jilek was chief conductor.

As the first act is a pantomime there is no singing at the first 30
minutes.

A cast list with correct Czech accents and also some information,
which was helpful translated by oescravo from a Czech book.


Cecilie Stradalova (Colombina),
Libuse Lesmanova (Katuska),
Helena Burianova (Zarikavacka),
Boris Cechovsky (Harlekyn),
Vaclav Halir (Starosta),

Festival 1960 with a partly Czech, partly Dutch cast with - for

Carolina Reitt married the Dutch tenor Hans Kaart and became a very
famous tv-personality as Caroline Kaart.

Here are some Janacek opera extracts from two long-deleted 1950s
Supraphon LPs.

(zipped m4a files, each extract separately tracked):

http://rapidshare.com/files/21256137/Janacek_Opera_Extracts_1950s.zip

If anyone feels like being very kind, they might like to try
declicking and generally cleaning up the sound of the first two items
here which make up a scarce 10-inch Supraphon record.

First, an almost unknown Bakala recording:

Janacek
Osud (Fate): Act 1 Duet (Mila, Zivny)

Libuse Domaninska (Mila), Jaroslav Ulrych (Zivny), Brno Radio Symphony
Orchestra, conductor: Bretislav Bakala

The following is, I think, the first time any of the music from
Broucek was recorded. This was the cast for a 1954 Brno production and
the recording was probably made at about the same time.

Janacek
The Excursion of Mr Broucek to the Moon: Final scene (from the Palace
of the Arts on the Moon to the end of the opera, including the
orchestral interlude)

Josef Kejr, Jaroslav Ulrych, Eduard Hrubes, Libuse Domaninska, Mila
Lederova, Vlastimil Sima, Antonin Jurecka, Jaroslav Jaros, Antonin
Pelz [Pelc], Chorus and Orchestra of the Janacek Opera, Brno,
conductor: Frantisek Jilek

(Supraphon SUF 20011)

For the Makropulos extracts (recorded in 1959) the conductor is
Janacek's great biographer Jaroslav Vogel (who also conducted a
complete Jenufa for Supraphon), and the singers include both Beno
Blachut (Albert Gregor), Rudolf Asmus (Dr Kolenaty) and Zdenka
Hrncirova as Emilia Marty

Janacek
The Makropulos Affair (given on the record as "Matter Makropulos"!)
Three extracts:
Act 1: fig. 102 to the end
Act 2: 3 bars after fig. 9 to fig. 25
Act 3: fig 112 to end
Zdenka Hrncirova (Emilia), Beno Blachut (Gregor), Teodor Srubar
(Prus), Rudolf Asmus (Kolenaty), Milada Musilova (Kristina), Rudolf
Vonasek (Janek), Chorus and Orchestra of Prague National Theatre,
conductor: Jaroslav Vogel

Jenufa
Act 2: Kostelnicka's Aria
Marie Steinerova, Orchestra of the Janacek Theatre, Brno, conductor:
Frantisek Jilek

Act 2: Jenufa's Prayer
Libuse Domaninska, Prague National Theatre Orchestra, conductor: Milan
Sachs

Finally, a lovely performance of the Vixen finale with Zdenek Kroupa,
poetically conducted by Bohumir Liska -- a gloriously apt name under
the circumstances (it means "Vixen", though it was his actual name too).

The Cunning Little Vixen
Act 3: finale
Zdenek Kroupa (Forester), Libuse Domaninska (Young Frog), Orchestra of
the Janacek Theatre, Brno, conductor: Bohumir Liska

Frida Leider (from a private collection)

This conllection is only for lo-fi hardcores. I noticed that this
wasn't available on rapidshare.com. It should contain all of the
recorded material available,including the 1933 Tristan excerpts that
Time uploaded.

Hello friends, here are in a second batch all the Frida Leider items
that I found in a private collection, some are not in good sound -
maybe Mike Richter could lend a hand? But at least we have personal
recollections of this great singer and many live-documents from London
and New York. Details/casts are in the files Enjoy Krysztof

MEDEA MEI-FIGNER sings Arias

Italian born and trained soprano Medea Mei (1859-1952) came to Russia
and conquered. She settled there and became a key figure of the
Russian operatic scene, married Russian tenor Nicolai Figner (who
duets with her in several selections), and created roles in operas by
Tchaikovsky and Napravnik. Mei and Figner created the leading roles
in Pique Dame. Figner also created Lenski in Eugene Onegin.

Mei has beauty of voice and temprament to spare. This is fabulous
singing in very decent sound if you consider that these recordings
are more than 100 years old. Figner it seems was well past his prime
when the recordings were made. Most of the numbers are sung in
Russian.

Individual MP3 files. Tracks on an upload to follow of Mei-Figner
in the song repertory will be numbered so that both uploads can be
burned on a single CD. Track listing is also included in the file.

Nellie Melba HMV Treasury set

This is a dub of the 1976 5-LP Nellie Melba HMV Treasury set (RLS
719), with all of the recordings she was known (at that time) to have
made between 1904 and 1926 for the Gramophone Company. This is NOT a copy
of the Melba Naxos CDs, which cannot be shared here because they're in
print, and which have several items that were discovered after this set was
made. This is my dub from my own LPs. This has five zip files, one for
each LP; the tracklisting is included here and with the first file.

The opera stars of Le Theatre Royal de la Monnaie, Brussels

Because of the great value of these schelllacks (mostly sung in

that means the unedited sound. This upload is only for fanatic
voice and rare repertoire collectors. Don't blame me concerning the
sound quality - it is what it is -- camp fire sound.

Gotterdammerung excerpt, Covent Garden 1950

Here is an excerpt from Gotterdammerung, broadcast live on the BBC's Third Programme from Covent Garden on June 26, 1950. Although the entire opera was broadcast, I only have an excerpt from Scenes 4 and 5 of Act 2 (interestingly enough the only part of Gotterdammerung that was recorded at Covent Garden in each of 1936, 1937 and 1938). There's a short dropout just before Scene 5 starts, while Svanholm is singing - you can hear him very faintly. I tried to sort this out, but the result was worse than the original, so I ended up leaving it as it is. Gotterdammerung June 26, 1950 Brunnhilde - Kirsten Flagstad Siegfried - Set Svanholm Hagen - Ludwig Weber Gunther - Paul Schoffler Gutrune - Doris Doree c. Karl Rankl http://rapidshare.com/files/16396046/Gott26Jun502ex.mp3 We now have excerpts from 3 of the 4 operas in the 1950 Covent Garden cycle. I unearthed a slightly longer extract from Das Rheingold than was shared previously - which is linked below. For convenience, I have also linked the two extracts from Siegfried broadcast that year.

Wagner at Covent Garden 1950

Following on from Tim Lockley's upload of the Siegfried extracts from
Covent Garden on the 23rd June 1950, here is an alternative extract
in rather different sound, from another BBC broadcast, this time from
the 14th June 1950, which was of Act 3 only. I only worked this out
since I uploaded the extracts so please ignore the erroneous date in
the Siegfried link.

In addition, here are extracts from the Rheingold from the complete
broadcast cycle, as well as a 12 minute snippet of Tristan which was
broadcast a few days later. These extracts are all that I know of,
but who knows what might yet still emerge from some Fafner's hoard!

TANNHAUSER JANOWITZ CABALLE BARCELONA 83


I can tell the story, as I was there. The originally scheduled Venus
cancelled (I don't remember who it was, maybe Randova?). It was to
be a fully staged production, but there was a strike in France and
the trucks coming over with the production could not get to
Barcelona. So it was decided that it would be a semi-staged version.
Ai that point Caballe, whose brother was very much involved with the
production and organizetion of the Spring Opera Festival at the Liceu
(an event that lasted very few years, as the season at the Liceu was
extended and those shows were integrated in the regular season)
volunteered to take up the part of Venus as long as she could have
the score because she had never done the part and had never learned
it from memory. So the little staging that was done was designed so
that whenever she had to sing she would be behind some prop that had
a score behind She did not come in as a surprise as her participation
was announced a few days before, but because she was good and also
she had had one more of the many gestures she had in her career
towards the Liceu to save the show.

This particular recording was made by a friend of mine who used
to "pirate" the performances at the Liceu and later sell them in
cassettes from a small kiosk she had a few doors down from the
theater in the Rambles. At the end of the performance she was very
nervous because her recorder had stopped and she had missed part of
the show but the bext day she was happy becaause practically all the
important moments had been recorded and all of Caballe's part was
there.

Gotterdammerung Covent Garden 1963

Although Solti, Nilsson and Windgassen famously recorded this for
Decca, in 1964 I think, they didn't often perform it live together.
One such occasion was this BBC broadcast from Covent Garden in 1963.
It is also noticeable for two future Brunnhildes in Rita Hunter as a
very noteworthy 3rd Norn and Gwyneth Jones as Wellgunde.

not as good as one might hope from the mid 50s, but bearable.

Wagner: DIE WALKU"RE, Excerpts (Dortmund 1974)

here is a (for me) very special recording from 1974: excerpts from
Wagner's "Walku"re" from the introductory matine'e which took place
one
week before the official premiere of this production. on this sunday
morning at 11:00 a.m. more than 1.400 people asembled at the
Dortmund
opera to attend this matine'e. The opera house has about 1.200 seats,
but a few minutes before the beginning Wilhelm Schu"chter, then
General
Intendant of the Opera, deceided to let all the people come into the
house, and we sat on the staircases and stood in the background.
The reason for this huge interest was the fact that the "Ring" had
not
been given in Dortmund for many, many years, and most of the singers
(most of them members of the company then) sang their roles for the
first time at all.
Anyway, every single excerpt was greeted with great enthusiasm by
the
public, and all of the following performanes were sold out.
In later years I very often met people from other cities in the
region
who remembered still with enthusiasm this morning at the Dortmund
opera.

For Wilhelm Schu"chter the production of the "Walku"re" was the last
great success, because a few months later he unexpectedly died. The
Ring cycle was then completed (and conducted) by Marek Janowski, who
became the next General Music Director in Dortmund (the "Rheingold"
I
also uploaded today was the next part of the cycle to be produced).

So these excerpts are very dear to me, and therefore I thought I
should
upload them for you. They come from an old cassette tape, but the
sound
is very good. Sorrily the end of the last excerpt was cut off
because
the tape reached it's end, but I think that sould be no problem at
all.

If this is the previously uploaded version it was recently re-
uploaded and it was then discovered that it was not this performance
at all, rather it was the Angeles Gulin / Carlo Bergonzi performance
which is available elsewhere on OperaShare.
There has been a lot of confusion on this. Is this in fact the
Vickers performance?

" RIENZI" 1967 Jean COX , Boehme - Munich live

per request here's Jean's "RIENZI" again!
For Erik (THANK YOU for all your great postings!!!) & all of you this
great performance from the Muenchner Festspiele 1967-live- in the
4-act-version with a lot of wonderful unforgotten singers like Holm,
Boehme and my friend, the wonderful, marvelously, uniquely Jean Cox.
This was THE "RIENZI" what was the start to his singularly
Wagner-career -> Sawallisch was lookin out for an Siegfried for his
'68 "RING" at Rome and he heared Jean at the Festspiele as Rienzi and
Jean was "bought" ;o) (...from the very good Rome-RING 1968-> kindly
uploaded by George [Message# 19038, 19071, 19129, 19141] to the
Bayreuther Festspiele it was only a small step...)

Maria Remola' - stratospheric coloratura

This was uploaded over a year ago but is no longer available, so I
thought I'd reload it. Maria Remola' was born in "Catalonia, Spain
12-7-1930" (which I assume means July 12th). The daughter of the
Spanish ambassador to Cuba, according to the single note I have about
her, she moved to Cuba in 1952. These recordings, made in the 1950s,
show a lovely soprano voice with Mado Robin-type high notes. Maria
Remola''s voice is, I think, quite a bit prettier than Robin's. She
sings, in Spanish, a charming rendition of the Adam Variations. I
particularly like her final cadenza for "Una voce."

The selections are not tracked, but are in this order:
Una voce poco fa, Il Barbiere di Siviglia
Variaciones de bravura A.C. Adam
Signore, ascolta, Turandot

Manon 1938 BBC Teyte Nash

I recorded this from BBC Radio 3 in FM stereo in 1993 on
audiocassette, hence the slight turnover gap during a chorus. Apart
from the 1993 announcer, it was a repeat of a 1979 broadcast with
comments from Alan Blyth, and this included commentary from the
original 1939 announcer. The programme was 88 minutes, but I don't
know if it included all the extant material, probably not. I have
added a Microsoft Word file with information from "More EJS:
Discography of the Edward J. Smith Recordings" by Shaman, Collins and
Goodwin (Greenwood Press). Eddie Smith published some extracts on
UORC 208, and then later in 1974 more comprehensive extracts on ANNA
1021.

AIDA Covent Garden 1976 Jones, King, Ludwig

I am not sure about that performance at Covent Garden but Christa Ludwig did sing at least one performance of Aida. She flew in to replace somebody who was sick as Amneris and caused a near sensation! I will check further . I have looked at all my ROH visits in 1976 and there is no performance of Aida listed. I did not see the performance when Ludwig substiuted for an ailing singer Hi everyone, This performance came to me labelled as Covent Garden 1976 HOWEVER, I have searched the online version of the Times, and Aida was not performed at Covent Garden that year so far as I can tell. King appeared in Die Frau Ohne Schatten and Fidelio that year but not Aida. Jones only appeared as Aida in 1968 at CG, I think, and I can't find a single instance of Ludwig singing Amneris in London. So, I have no idea as to the real date or location of this in-house recording. As in-house recordings go it is not bad, though there are some drop-outs, usually after big numbers. If anyone can provide a definitive cast/date it would be appreciated. Tim > Verdi: Aida Aida: Gwyneth Jones Radames: James King Amneris: Christa Ludwig Amonasro: Matteo Manuguerra

I MASNADIERI Raimondi, Ligabue, Bruson, Christof

This is an in-house recording taken from out-of-print "The Golden Age of Opera"
CDs.
Sometimes the audience members near the recorder are louder than the singers or
the
orchestra covers them as they move around on the stage & out of range, but, for
the most
part, the sound & performance are both very good. 192kbps each act in one track
with Act
III split for easy burning. "Acts I, II, & III beginning" will fit on one CD,
leaving "Act III
conclusion" to go on a second.

NOTES: My apologies to those inconvenienced by the tiny final file.
Again, neither picture nor sound is what one would hope so please check

Carteri.

STRONG RECOMMENDATION: When (one hopes) these films become available on
Hardy, go for them! They have access to what passes for masters in the
RAI vaults and are expert in restoring them to the extent that
restoration is possible. The price is low compared with the rewards
their offerings provide and I urge all to join me in supporting such
efforts.

This premiere was a little scandal because of the ridiculous sets of
this production. Victoria Vergara, who began this evening really not
bad, lost her nerves because of lots of booes and laughters. In fact
she absolutely failed her third act solo, which caused much more noise
from the public. That was not really fair I think.

This is not a rarity from Giacomo Puccini, but certainly a rarity,
by his grandfather Domenico Puccini, premiere in Lucca 1815. Born in
1771, he died suddenly in 1815, possibly poisoned due to liberal
convictions.

Les Martyrs, Venice, 18 June 1978

I found a previously uploaded recording which shall be from Venice(
message 5214), but there is no exact date given and the included cast
list is for Les Martyrs Bergamo. There seem to be several recordings
from this production, I have June 18 and 24. Both seem to be better
than the one which has been already uploaded. I checked the La Fenice
archive and both dates are possible. This recording seems to be an
in-house, sound is not excellent, but nice for such a recording from
that time.

Nozze di Figaro Glyndebourne 1963

This is a chance for all Gencer fans to find out if there are 2 Nozzes
from Glyndebourne. Pablo previously uploaded a version which is dated
28 June 1963. This one is dated 22 June 1963, no idea if the
recordings are really different. Maybe someone else could find out and
tell us.

Cavalleria Rusticana

I saw this request for Gencer's Cavalleria Rusticana - Napoli 1971 (among
other Gencer recordings) - I have a suspicion that it might already be on the
site - there have been lots of talk about it at least - but I'm not sure.
Anyway. Here is mine. I got it on a foul cassette some years ago and remember
spending a lot of time trying to make it sound fair.
Of course sound is a very relative thing, but I find it hearable if not as
good as I could have wished.

Most likely it's Giuliana Ricciardi as Lola. Breda, whatever her
first name is, would be Mamma Lucia.

Johann Strauss Die Fledermaus

According to the printed annals of the Vienna State Opera, Rudolf Schock's stage farewell took place on 1 January 1976. However, on that day Hans Helm and Anton Wendler made their role debuts as Falke and Dr Blind, whereas on this recording clearly the voices of Heinz Holecek (Falke) and Heinz Zednik (Blind - who only sang this role on 31 December 1974 and 1st January 1975) can be heard. So I assume, the date is correct and that it simply isn't Schock's farewell.

Ida is sung/spoken by Dagmar Koller, Frosch by Karl Paryla.


Rosalinde - Edda Moser
Adele - Renate Holm
Eisenstein - Rudolf Schock (farewell from Stage)
Prinz Orlofsky - Christa Ludwig

By request: this is a transfer of an LP published by the Syracuse

Berg songs. She is accompanied by Edwin Biltcliffe.
The recording was published in 1962. It's not clear whether that
was the date of the performances.

LA BOHE`ME

Here's an in-house (rather good for the era but clearly in-house) of
Pilar Lorengar's Mimi with a stronger supporting cast than her Met
broadcast. The in-house perspective reveals quite clearly how
beautifully Lorengar projected into a large theatre, something not
always clear in her recordings.

Giacomo Puccini

Mimi`- Pilar Lorengar
Rodolfo- Carlo Bergonzi
Musetta- Colette Boky
Marcello- Vicente Sardinero
Schaunard- Allan Monk
Colline- Justino Di'az
Benoit- Fernando Corena
Alcindoro- Fernando Corena

Notte e giorno faticar
Lasciala, indegno!
Ma qual mai s'offre, o dei ... Fuggi, crudele, fuggi
[Orsu, spicciati presto] ... Lo sento
Ah, chi mi dice mai
[Madamina,] il catalogo e questo
Giovinette che fate all'amore ... Manco male, e` partita
Ho capito, signor, si
Io vi voglio sposar ... La ci darem la mano
[Non ti fidar... ] Te vuol tradir ancor
[Era gia al]quanta avanzata... Or sai chi l'onore
Come mai creder deggio ... Dalla sua pace
[Finch' han dal vino ... Una] gran festa fa preparar
... ma poi fa pace ... Batti, batti, o bel Masetto
[Tra quest] arbori celata

Act II

Ah taci, ingiusto core!
Deh vieni alla finestra... V'e` gente alla finestra
Meta` di voi qua` vadano
Vedrai, carino, se sei buonino
Il mio tesoro intanto
Ah, ah, questa e` buona!
O statua gentilissima
[Crudele?] Ah, no, mio bene
Gia la mensa e preparata ... Don Giovanni, a cenar teco
...dov' e` l'indegno?

Brian Sullivan (Narraboth);

I have already uploaded this performance which I think actually dates
from 19 January 1952. A search using Salome and Reiner produced it. It
is worth using the search tool before asking for an upload
