Elizabeth Endsley <[log in to unmask]> aksed about the
DGG "Yevgeny Onyegin" excerpts CD in German with DFD, Wunderlich,
cond. Gerdes:

> Is or was a complete performance of this Fischer-Dieskau "Eugen
>Onegin"available ?

Elizabeth and the list,

the recording mentioned definitely was a "highhlight only" recording
(which was a very common practice in Germany then). It has been
reissued on CD DGG 447818-2.

IMHO Wunderlich is a wonderful Lenski, which was perhaps his best role
of all. There is a full recording of his Onegin, also in German
language, on GALA. (I think it is still available, as I have received
my copy from Europadisc mail order earlier this year.)

GALA GL 100.520. (2CD set)
Tchaikovsky: Yevgeny Onyegin
Bayerische Staatsoper production TV broadcasting,
rec. at Prinzregententheater Munich, Oct 9th 1962
