Thank you for these rare recordings.

The dates for Beethoven 6th in Toscanini Discography are June 22; July 16; Oct. 21 & 22, 1937 (http://www.toscaninionline.com/disco5.htm).

Similarly, the RT007 Leonore No.1 is dated from June 1, 1939.

You indicate June 1, 1937 for both recordings. Incidentally, Wilhelm Furtwangler was conducting his famous Gotterdammerung at Covent Garden that evening. :)

It would be quite a day in London's musical life, then.

Yes, just controlled, you're right.

But the wrong dates are printed on the *°ç§@è LPs & CDs!!!

l'll fix the covers as soon as possible.

Thank you, Guido.

It is a pity, though. It was intriguing to think that these recordings were made the same day. :)

Guido said...

Was veeery intriguing :-)

Covers fixed.


Anyway Toscanini was in London... in fact he conducted (2 june 1937) this program with the BBC SO

ROSSINI
