    1. Hello Thomas,
      Well - at least i got some comments on the other blog (linked above) of Welitsch recordings - and, as this was very easy to transfer, I'm not too fussed in this case!
      I do have the original CBS/Columbia set (1950, I think) of Die Fledermaus - but the pressings - whilst sounding very good - would require more work than I could justify.
