Abstract:

The collection contains both commercial and noncommercial discs of opera from the beginning of this century to the mid-1970's on acetate air-check discs, 78 rpm shellacs, cylinders, and a scattering of LP's.

The commercial recordings include almost all of the Metropolitan Opera singers who recorded commercially. Moreover, nearly half of the collection consists of operatic and art-song recordings from the 78 rpm electrical era, 1925-1948. Among the more notable rarities are three 1902 Pathe? sides recorded by Enrico Caruso in Milan, a 1902 Chaliapin recording of the "Calf of Gold" aria from "Faust" done in St. Petersburg for the Gramophone & Typewriter Co., and an equally scarce 1903 G & T disc of Felia Litvinne singing Bru?nnhilde's "Ho-Jo-To-Ho" with Alfred Cortot at the piano.

The non-commercial acetates document, through broadcasts and prompter-box recordings, performances of opera houses from around the world, including La Scala, Florence, Turin, Bayreuth, Salzburg, Covent Garden, and Buenos Aires. They also include private recordings of recitals by well-known artists.
