        Dr. Alfred Poell, baritone in many early opera recordings
        from Vienna. He may have been the Statsoper's throat specialist.
        Giuseppe Sinopoli was also an MD. Once, during an appearance
        with the National Symphony, he stepped down from the podium
        to administer to a clarinetist who had collapsed on stage.
