Well my turntable is in the shop as I must have shorted a cable somewhere and I'm getting the impression that the technician will take as much time as he can before fixing the problem. Its been a couple of weeks now and I don't even think he's looked at it yet. So this may be a good time to search for unknown vinyl given the fact that I no longer spend time getting up to either flip sides or change out records. That's at least an extra hour or two a week.
I got into the art song craze due to my grandmothers recordings of Schubert and Schumann on 45 rpm 7 inch mono pressings. I believe that many of these were recitals that she gave at the Cincinnati College of Music, later to merge with the Conservatory to become the College Conservatory of Music. And I ended up being the only visual artist in the family, go figure.
What I'm wanting to know is if anyone can recommend Deutsche Lieder or French Art Song recordings on mono vinyl or stereo/mono CD or SACD. I like mono vinyl but these can be hard to find in fine playable condition though I must admit, this is part of the appeal. So please, all suggestions are greatly appreciated and I'll copy and paste them onto a text edit file.
p.s Right now Sandrine Piau and Maggie Teyte are the 'thing'.
