A post was started to popular music on vinyl that still hasn't made it to CD (or needs reissue). How about complete operas or recitals that still aren't on digital? Anyone care to state their favorites?
- Massenet Thais with Moffo. Plenty of "bootlegs" have been made, but I'd like a legit digital restoration from BMG.
- Massenet La Navaraisse with Lucia Popp. Originally on Columbia Masterworks, far superior to the RCA recording with Marilyn Horne.
-Joan Sutherland Command Performances set. Bits and pieces of it are on compilations and the like, but not the complete set.
-Frederica von Stade's Italian arias album on CBS, as well as her recording of Monteverdi's Ulyssie that I've never heard.
-Magloire's recording of Rameau Les Indes Galantes and Hippolyte et Aricie. Still not on CD and I think better than the performances currently available.
-Revive CD versions of Hindemith's Mathis der Mahler (EMI) and Penderecki's Teufel von Loudon (Phillips) - Ebay bidders have to pay a fortune for remaining copies!
