There is a big difference, needless to say, between the majority of the
minority who constitute classical music aficionados and those we speak
of as collectors.
If (a tad out of place on this list) I may extend the subject to
include singers, I personally, after first hearing Georges Thill singing
the great recit.+aria of Enee in Les Troyens, can receive very little
satisfaction from the Vickers, Villars, Goulds, Heppners and other would
be realizers of the role.
What does this mean? Most of the few who care about Les Troyens adore
not only Vickers and Heppner but now Kunde. To me they get less and
It means little except that I do not believe I will ever find a performance
of one of my favorite operas which I can enjoy.
