    1. Hello Satyr.
      Plenty here to entertain you - though Vol.2 'problems' almost caused me to give-up on the transfers; hence the long delay.

      I can't recall whether it was the Gramophone review or hearing some of it on BBC Radio 3 that encouraged me to buy that album (Henry Stave: £3.99) - but the Turandot thrilled a Decca opera producer when he heard it via my posh HiFi in 1978 - but I think the earlier Volume is better overall - the Othello is superb (first saw that set when the owner brought it out 'from under the counter' @ 'Orchesographie' (Cecil Court, London) sometime after it was released..

      Sadly my mint laminate pressing of Schmerzen/Traume became damaged - and can't remove the thuds lasting a minute - from an otherwise near-silent surface with lovely sound-quality...
