    I think this has got good sound too, of course considering it is a recording from such a long time ago. How much the engineering has taken away from Lotte Lehmann's voice I don't know but their is plenty of character in the singing and I like it.

    Lohengrin

    A great recommendation by Hoffmann! It was not the recording he recommended (he suggested others) but on the opera itself. He saw the list of my likes and thought I would like this. Good call! Straight away my favourite of the Wagner's. A romantic opera with Princess' and Knights in shining armour. Feel free to throw any other suggestion like this my way.

    A budget recording (not for the end consumer) and so not great sound. Voices are there and the feet are here and the orchestra is over there (none in the same place)! However if someone is very keen to hear the work there are few choices for this opera.
    Ok, here's another suggestion: Die Tote Stadt (Korngold) Disappeared from the repertory for decades, but is gradually finding its way back in again. I have the old Leinsdorf recording with Carol Neblett and Rene Kollo, although I'm not sure if it's still in print:

    That is the finest sung Lohengrin I have ever heard, Jess Thomas gives us great performance

    Elena Souliotis short but brilliant career is so inspiring, she is the closest of any singer to capture the spirit of Callas. Recently acuired this CD collection at Amazon USA......

    A beautiful recording.
    And meets my vital criteria for Tristan.
    Each act complete on its own cd.

    Interesting cast - How does Rene Kollo do? Tristan is as tough as it gets.

    I like Kollo, though I know that he seems to be not very well-regarded.

    It's supposed to rain all day, so no walk today.

    Lots of time to listen to a recording DA recommended:

    The Kubelik is fantastic. arguably the best recording of that masterpiece.
    His Parsifal is on my wish list.

    On Kleibers Tritan. Kollo does ok as its a studio recording. Sings with much feeling even though his voice lacks a little heft. I happen to like Kollo so its not a problem for me.
    Price is a little smallish of voice but gives a very touching performance.
    Recording and orchestra are superb.

    I'm enjoying Britten more than I ever thought I would.

    Enjoying very much Handel operas. I think my next purchase may be Alan Curtis box set, currently GBP 35 at Presto Classical. For 6 operas, that makes each opera... err... a good price.
