CD82604 More French operettas - Offenbach: Madame Favart + a mi

> of RTF archive material. > > First, many thanks to everyone who helped out putting names to the singers of Offenbach's Robinson Crusoé. > > I'm not attempting to list performers this week either - the various announcers do a better job than I could. > > The only complete work in this weekend's (Saturday 14 August 2010) programme is Offenbach's 1878 Madame Favart. By then, only four more operettas remained for Offenbach to write. > > After the operetta, as last week, Emile Tavan is represented with a pot pourrie of melodies from Offenbach's La Fille du tambour major (the second of the four remaining operettas). > > Then follows a 1949 interview with an Offenbach connoisseur, Ferdinand Bac, on 'musicians I have known'. Bac wrote a biography of Offenbach but it's publication, due in 1940, was banned by the occupying forces in France. > > Next an Offenbach one-acter Le Fifre enchanté. Both this and Madame Favart are productions of RTF Lille. > > Finally, Roger Roger's five-movement Suite météo - a marvellous piece. > > None of these performances are available commercially. > > Links > > 01 > Jacques Offenbach - Madame Favart, par les solistes, les chœurs et l'orchestre lyrique de Radio Lille > conducted by Marcel Cariven > Recorded 8 November 1956 > Archive INA – non commercialisée

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.
