CD86168 Milhaud, David, Op 320 German language broadcast (I think) 1

Here is the correct cast list, including also some small corrections at role names. The recording was made at Hamburg radio on 31 March 1955, lasting around 1 h 50 min.

> > Darius Milhand, DAVID Op 320 > Young David, Hermann Prey > Old David, Hans Herbert Fiedler > Samuel/Zadok, Walter Kreppel > Isai/Ethopian, Erich Wenk > Isai's wife/Witch of Endor, Ursula Zollenkopf > Abner/Joab, Hermann Rieth > Saul/Nathan, James Pease > Goliath/Abiathar, Caspar Bröcheler > Jonathan/Abissai/Ahimaak, Kurt Wehofschitz > Michal, Clara Ebers > Amalekite/Benaja, Kurt Marschner > Bathsheba, Siw Ericsdotter > Abisag, Dorothea Förster-Georgi > Salomon, Maria Plümachcher > NDR-Chor Hamburg Sinfonieorchester des NWDR (now NDR) > Conductor Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt > > The performance amounts to about 2 hours of music, so something has been omitted. It divided easily into 10 sections, but background information included in the file (from the US premiere in 1956) indicates there should be 12 tableaux. Any information about the performance, the music that was cut and the singers (transcribed from poor handwriting) would be appreciated. A better recording (eg from the 1956 US premiere) must surely exist. > Source from reel-to-reel via cassette to .WAV and thence to mono .mp3 at 192 kbps. Probably an AM radio broadcast to judge from the variations (and big drop out in the final chorus.
