(Austria) Preiser 89729. (V1579)
“This is the third volume of Italian soprano Licia Albanese released by Preiser. The previous two are lovely examples of her operatic art. This third installment covers her recital and concert repertoire….The big treat here is her 1951 RCA Victor recording of Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Braseileiras #5 with Leopold Stokowski conducting.”
- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, July/Aug., 2010LICIA ALBANESE: Arias from Adriana Lecouvreur, Mefistofele, La Wally, Pagliacci, Cavalleria, Manon Lescaut, Hérodiade, Louise, La Boheme, La Traviata & Madama Butterfly. (Austria) Preiser 89581, recorded 1945-50. (V0065)
“One of the most delicate, sighing, judiciously used women’s voices one might ever hear. Licia Albanese would move on stage purposefully, with precision, painting her tones with careful control of her means and a clear perception of their end.”
- Giacomo Lauri-Volpi, VOCI PARALLELE (Bologna ed., 1977) MADAMA BUTTERFLY, Live Performance, 25 Jan., 1941 (replete with Milton Cross’ commentaries), w.Papi Cond.

(Canada) 4-Immortal Performances IPCD 1037, w.30pp Elaborate Booklet – Madama Butterfly & 42pp Elaborate Booklet, La Traviata. Transfers by Richard Caniell. Booklet notes by Dr London Green. (OP2898)
“This LA TRAVIATA is a real discovery…even if you love [Albanese’s famous recording with Toscanini] you should hear this one....Partnering with both Kullman and Tibbett, the soprano...inflects every word and every phrase in a way that brings Violetta to life....We are witness to a musical drama brought to life as a dramatic whole....this performance stands with the great ones, and that will make you react freshly to the opera, and in a way that will stay in the memory.
Everything said about Albanese’s Violetta applies as well to her Butterfly....Immortal Performances has now issued the 1941 performance in excellent monaural broadcast sound. The difference between this and Walhall is night-and-day. It is difficult to over-praise the production values of Immortal Performances. They always include excellent essays...and interesting historic photos. The bonus items capture Albanese in superb voice....This set is essential for anyone who loves these operas.”
- Henry Fogel, FANFARE, May/June, 2014
“[Albanese] had prepared [Cio-Cio-San] with her teacher, Giuseppina Baldassare-Tedeschi, a popular Cio-Cio-San in Italy at the beginning of the century, and since 1935 Albanese had been singing it at Italy’s leading theatres….Albanese will become one of the favorite artists of the Saturday afternoon broadcasts not only because of her vocal gifts but because of her ability to act with the voice – though unseen, her heroines become visible to the invisible audience.”
- Paul Jackson, SATURDAY AFTERNOONS AT THE OLD MET, pp.249 & 250
GIUSEPPE di STEFANO: 'Pippo' - Le Jeune di Stefano, incl.

(France) Malibran AMR 113, recorded 1944-46. (V2491)
“Mature achievement wins applause; youthful promise for some reason moistens the eyes . . . (the early recordings) of the 22 or 23 year old di Stefano might, indeed, make the angels weep. He shows quite probably the most beautiful lyric tenor voice since Gigli . . .”
– J. B. Steane

CHARLES TRENET: Five Songs; 'Mr. NOBODY plays Trenet'. Actually, none other than ALEXIS WEISSENBERG playing Trenet Songs: Coin de rue; En Avril, à Paris; Vous oubliez votre cheval; Boum!; Vous qui passez sans me voir; Ménilmontant - from an early Lumen disk! (Canada) St Laurent Studio YSL 78-065. Transfers by Yves St Laurent. (PE0206)
"Sometime in the 1950s there appeared on the Lumen label an extended play 45rpm record called MR. NOBODY PLAYS TRENET. It contained unusually creative and entertaining piano settings of six songs by the French singer-songwriter Charles Trenet. The identity of ‘Mr. Nobody’ was kept secret until a few years ago, when it was revealed to be Alexis Weissenberg. It is easy to see why Weissenberg chose to adopt a pseudonym for this recording. At that time a serious classical pianist dabbling in such trivialities as popular song would most likely have been compromising his own career. From the moment I was introduced to this recording by a friend, I was anxious to play the arrangements myself. But since Weissenberg never wrote them down, I had to create a score. Luckily, the whole experience of transcribing the songs was pleasant—despite my devoting an entire month to it. Anyone who is familiar with Trenet’s songs in their original form will be delightfully surprised by what Weissenberg has done with them. Unusual touches abound: in ‘Coin de rue’, an evocation of the narrator’s childhood, the listener is treated to the sounds of a barrel organ; the ‘oom-pah’ rhythm of ‘Boum!’ becomes a foxtrot, while the moderately paced ‘Ménilmontant’ is transformed into a headlong moto perpetuo.”
- Marc-André Hamelin

LA FANCIULLA DEL WEST, Live Performance, 17 Jan., 1966, w.Behr Cond. Met Opera Ensemble; Eleanor Steber, Franco Corelli / Gaetano Bardini, Anselmo Colzani, etc. (Canada) 2-Yves St Laurent T-519. Transfers by Yves St Laurent. [This unique recording of Steber's sensational last-minute Minnie was made from a 'pirate' recording from within the house, with the duly excited audience's spontaneous reactions - very occasionally intrusive, but the clear sound comes through beautifully.] (OP3217)
“When I finally went down the steps to the stage before the opening curtain…the men of the chorus were waiting for me, and when I walked on they gave me an ovation. What a greeting! …. The door on the landing burst open and I charged out with my pistol blazing. It was only a split second before I heard the roar of the crowd. I remained frozen, gun in hand, watching and listening as the whole audience stood up and hollered. Through all the clapping and shouting, I heard one thing cutting through loud and clear – my name – ‘STEBER’! The whole Opera House went up in smoke. The orchestra had to stop and there was absolute pandemonium! It was great, and I felt fantastic, absolutely fantastic! … the ‘boys’ didn’t sing what was written. They were cheering and shouting and clapping with the audience – ‘Welcome home, Minnie! Welcome home, Steber!’ It was the greatest single moment of my life!”
- ELEANOR STEBER – AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY, pp.238-40

[NB: A grievous error has appeared in the recent past! The Marie in this performance is sung by Lucienne Marée, not Irma Kolassi!] (OP3216)
“…it was not until 1950, with Horenstein's presentation of WOZZECK for Radio France, that his career began to regain some of the momentum and lustre it had enjoyed before the war (25-year old Pierre Boulez who was present at the presentation of WOZZECK, recalled later that ‘it was my first live experience [of WOZZECK] and left an immense impression’.)"
