I am looking for two LP editions of Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, conducted by Wilhelm Furtwängler at La Scala in 1951:
-Fonit Cetra FE-46. This was a very late volume in Fonit Cetra's Furtwängler Edition, and is not to be confused with the earlier Cetra release, LO 19 (which I already have).
-Eddie Smith UORC-169. I have a copy of this, but unfortunately the first record bears the matrix numbers for UORC-167, and is definitely not this performance. I need a copy where at least side A is UORC 169.
If anyone has copies they would like to sell, or would be willing to loan so I can make digital transfers, I would appreciate hearing from you.
