Mono HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Danacord) Richard Wagner – Lohengrin (Live MET 1950) (Melchior, Traubel, Varnay, Stiedry)

A great “THANK YOU” to Bob for this rarity

Lauritz Melchior (20 March 1890 – 19 March 1973) was a Danish-American opera singer. He was the pre-eminent Wagnerian tenor of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s and has since come to be considered the quintessence of his voice type. Late in his career, Melchior appeared in movie musicals and on radio and television. He also made numerous recordings.

  1. For nearly the first 10 minutes of the Act I Prelude there is a little surface noise, but what awesome history. And Melchior nor Traubel disappoint. They were great MET Luminaries together in the German wing of the House.
    Thank you so much for this one. Not that you do not have enough vinyls to re-do.
    With good will and kindness, also for Spearo,
