Of course Gre Brouwenstijn recorded Sieglinde in the Leinsdorf/ Walkure for
Decca/London and also Marta in the Philips Tiefland under Moralt.  Also
there is a 'pirate' of the famous Visconti production of Don Carlos (ROH,
London under Giulini, May 1958) with Vickers, Barbieri, Gobbi & Christoff.

Listers may be interested to know that Gramophone magazine will put its
entire database on the web on 30th March and free of charge.  This comprises
every single CD review since 1983 as well as, they say, the details of
20,000 items which did not receive a review.  I guess that it won't be as
fast as their
CD-ROM but it will enable a great deal of information to be accessed. < >.  The search facility is most excellently

And then I was wondering, too, about those artists that I had encountered in
my early years and what had become of them.  Some may have been at the end
of their careers and I didn't know it !

Here are a few :

Kyra Vane (Tosca, London 1954 ) but she's well; I visited her before Xmas !
Gianfranco Cecchele (5/65 Pollione/Norma, Paris c/Callas)
Helga Pilarczyk (10/62 Lulu, London -Hamburg Opera visit, Ludwig)

                    & 6/58 Alfredo to Callas/ ROH/London, Rescigno)
Leyla Gencer (2/62 Anna/Giovanni, ROH/London, Solti)

Renato Cioni  (64/5 Cavaradossi to Callas' Tosca, London & Paris
                   also 5 & 12/66 Don Carlos, Paris/ Dervaux
                     & 3/62 Duke/Rigoletto, ROH/London, Sillem)
Suzanne Sarroca (6/64 Elisabeth/Don Carlos, Paris/ Dervaux
                      - with Corelli, Ghiaurov, Gorr & L.Quilico !)

Nancy Tatum (4/66 Desdemona (with Craig/Gobbi), Paris/ Sebastian &
                    2/69 Aida (with Gorr), Monnaie/ Vanderzand
                    - and the Radames was Amedeo Zambon - who he ?)
Margaret Harshaw (9/60 Brunnhilde Ring cycle,  ROH/London, Kempe)
Annita Valki (9/61 Brunnhilde/ Ring 2, ROH/London, Solti

Perhaps that should get some memories stirring !
