Comments:- Recording of a performance by the Vienna State Opera during a visit to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. According to Radio Times Fidelio was broadcast twice on 19 and 24 September 1947 (see Radio Times, Issue dated September 12 1947 p.24, Issue dated September 19 1947 p.20) and this recording appears to be of the performance on 24 September. According to the Times (September 25 1947 p.6) Hans Hotter was to have sung Pizzaro, but was ill, and was replaced by Paul Schöffler. The opera was performed using sets designed by Rex Whistler for Covent Garden . The CDs issued by the Istituto Discografico Italiano are incorrectly described as being a recording of a performance by the Covent Garden Company.

Comments:- Recording of a performance broadcast by the BBC Third Programme (October 1947). According to «More EJS» portions of the recording of the finale on the Rococo LPs were taken from the commercial recording conducted by Beecham. Two performances were broadcast, on 24 and 26 October 1947. See Radio Times Issue dated October 19-25 1947 p.24 and that dated Oct.26-Nov. 1 1947 p.4. According to the review by James Miller in FANFARE the recording on the CDs issued by Opera d'Oro (OPD 1431) is not of the performance conducted by Beecham but of that conducted by Miropoulos (Salzburg 1957) that has also been issued by Opera d'Oro (OPD 1190).

Comments:- The recording issued by the Omega Opera Archive is listed in their online catalogue (see CLORLINK.HTM) where it stated that their recordings are available «on CD, cassette or reel-to-reel tape». The date of the performance recorded is given here as June 1961. If the partial cast that they list is correct then this date is almost certainly incorrect as according to the «Chronik der Wiener Staatsoper 1945-1995» (p.635) Svanholm only sang Walther von Stolzing at the Vienna Staatsoper twice after World War II, on 27 September 1952 and 4 October 1954. As Karl Böhm conducted «Die Meistersinger» for the first time in Vienna (after World War II) on 24 February 1953 (ibid. p.303) the most likely date for the recording issued by Omega seems to be 4 October 1954. The performance took place in the Theater an der Wien.

Comments:- Recording of a performance at the Vienna State Opera (14 November 1955). This performance was badly reviewed by PH in OPERA, January 1956 p.28 . According to the review in the ARSC Journal the recording on the Melodram CDs is of a performance on 4 November 1955, a date which seems very unlikely given that the rebuilt opera house opened on 5 November 1955

Presumably this recording was taken from the former. (See Radio Times Issue dated June 25 - July 1 1950 p.27, p.35). The recording issued by Walhall is a «filler» on the CDs of the recording (originally Decca) of Götterdämmerung.
