Product Description

CD92772 Manon - audio 1966 with Freni and Garaventa with corrected d

Here is an audio only from the recently uploaded Manon video with Freni and Garaventa.

My conjectures on the date of the performance in the original post were incorrect. Garaventa made his debut as a tenor only in 1965 and the Teatro Communale in Modena has confirmed 1966 as the year of the performance. So much for all my logic! I am removing the original post.

The orchestral prelude and the final 50 seconds have been patched in from the 1969 La Scala performance, also with Freni and Peter Maag conducting. The prelude splice has a glitch due to a cut in Modena which was not taken in Milan--it passes quickly. This repair would not have been necessary if I had waited for the missing .005 file, which I did not know was coming, but everything else was in fine condition so I will not redo it. Once past the very poor chorus this is a wonderful performance in excellent sound for the era.

USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
