|How do I find the recording I'm looking for?
Let's say you are looking for a Tannhäuser. You know it is
from 1961 and that it is a Bayreuth performance and now you want to
know the cast. You click Discography and Tannhäuser in the menu.
You have now entered the Tannhäuser discography. In every
discography there is a link list with all the recordings in
chronological order. You also have the conductor, the most important
artists of the performance and where the performance took place to
make it more easy for you to recognise the performance. Go to 1961 and
you will find the Tannhäuser you are looking for there. Just
click the link and you will see the information on the recording.
Other ways to find a recording - Search
If you want to find recordings with a special artist, click Search
and Artists in the menu. Then select the
artist if available.
If you know the label and labelnumber, click Search and
Labels in the menu. Then select label and
choose from the link list sorted by number.
If you want to find performances recorded at a special Opera House,
click Search and Houses in the menu.
Then select the house if available.
You can also use the Quick Search function to search for artists,
labels, and houses not included in the special indexes. Click Search
and Quick Search. Here you can also search
for all other information included in the discography.
If you're not looking for a special recording, feel free to browse
the discography anyway. You may find a recording you didn't know
|Why isn't that recording in the discography?
If you can't find information about a recording you are looking
for, send me an e-mail. I may not be aware of it's existence. Highly
unlikely! ;-) Maybe I don't have enough information about it. It could
also be that it has never been released on CD.
|Why are not LPs included?
At the moment LPs are not included in the discography. I find
searching for CDs alone is a large enough project. All recorded
Wagner operas will likely be released on CD eventualy.
|What do I do if I find an error in your discography?
In the unlikely event of you finding an error in the Discography ;-),
I would be very grateful if you would let me know. I have spent a lot
of time trying to eliminate the errors but that is colse to an
impossible task. If you find an error, click the
"Find any errors?"-link to mail me about it.
|Do you sell any recordings?
|Where can I buy the recordings?
In the link section you can find links to
some of the web based record stores available. They have a lot to
offer. The recordings from the big labels, Decca, Deutsche Grammophon,
Philips etc., are probably available at your local record store if
they have an opera section or a classical music section. The
recordings from the smaller labels, Golden Melodram, MYTO etc., may
be more difficult to find. Some of these recordings are available at
the web based record stores. Your best chance is a smaller private
store or second hand. You can also trade for it but that is not
