Vinyls 16/44.1 (RCA) Richard Wagner – Lohengrin (Leinsdorf)

Never before – or after – have I heard that story of Grail told / sung so beautifully. No other tenor has got the potential this Hungarian had in both his voice itself as such and in his interpretation of this role: depth, warmth, sheer beauty, colour, heft, masculinity, humanity, style, musicality, phrasing – you name it, and let it be whatever – but it’s THERE.
Sorry, “only” 16 bit & 44.1 kHz – made for my personal joy many years ago, as i had no mind for HD

  1. Dear Rachmaninov, if there is a little chance of re-uploading this great piece of music, will be very very thankful! Thanks for everything you have done and doing for us! All the best!

  2. Hi Rac,
    Got this one from you on 12/15/2011 when it was on hotfile.
    It seems like a lifetime ago, but only 2 and a half years.

    Anyway; you are right, I really like Sandor Konya when I heard him on the MET Texaco Radio network in the 1960s .
    Thanks for sharing even 16/44! Far better than nothing.
