Remarks
Broadcast
Sung in Hungarian
The radio wanted to record this performance. Simándy was splendid, the audience wanted a repetition and clapped continuously, Klemperer did not want to stop. Finally he angrily stopped the performance, shouted “Frechheit!” (Impertinence!) and left the podium. It lasted several minutes to make him come back and finish the opera.
