Product Description

CD89753 Rosenkavalier, Covent Garden 1966

This performance was recorded on April 26, 1966, but only broadcast on October 30, 1966. It was broadcast in mono, but evidently the BBC recorded it in stereo, since in 1997 during a `From the Archives' broadcast they included portions of this performance. Thus what is uploaded here is a compilation of decent AM mono and excellent FM stereo – approximately the final 20 mins of acts 1 and 3 are in stereo. One can only hope that some day the complete stereo tape sees the light of day. This run of Rosenkavaliers was Jurinac's debut as the Marschallin, with the first performance on April 21. Enjoy Tim
