Trovatore, recordings, Library of Congress, CD


This is a huge task but very little new has been accomplished during 2007 aside from the points mentioned above about the 1947 Met Trovatore, the coming new Bluebell CD, and Greg's CD. We have renewed our contacts with the Idabelle Firestone Library, the Bell Telephone archive, V AI. the Nostalgia Company, the Library of Congress, the NY Public Library archives of sound and other organizations. specially useful and enjoyable was a January visit to NYC to hear Seth Winner in two lectures about the Toscanini archive, and· the opportunity to consult with him about practicalities: What procedures are likely to be effective, and whom to work with?
