CD95993 Osud BBC Radio 1971

Hi everyone This is rather poignant recording since a couple of months after this recording in December 1971 Marie Collier died after falling from a second-floor window aged just 44. She never heard the broadcast which occurred in January 1972. Collier was a noted interpreter of Janacek, singing a number of his operas at Sadler's Wells in the 1950s and 1960s. This was a new role for her, and indeed it might have been the first time Osud was heard in Britain. The sound is ok stereo, there was a persistent high pitched interference that I have tamed by equalisation and the balance between left and right was all over the place - I have tried to resolve that as best I can. All the commentary and the intermission features are included. This is not from the Jan '72 broadcast but from a re-broadcast in 1973. I can't find the exact date of that.

Important Information!!!
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.
