Remarks
“The opera was abridged for recording purposes under the supervision of Ernest Newman and the late Siegfried Wagner” (original release note). Columbia had decided to record the opera on 36 sides which meant about 4/5 of the complete opera could be recorded (the most cuts are in the third act). According to Pearl the recording took place in july, according to Naxos in august 1930.
