Dear fellow list members,
I received the following query from Adam Freeman, which I pass on in case
anyone has the information he seeks.
* * * * *
I am writing on behalf of l'Association des Amis de l'Art de Marcel Dupré.
Dupré toured extensively the US; do you know of radio broadcasts he
participated in America? In conversion with Michael Murray, he remembered
that Dupré was interviewed at least once on an American radio station, and
performed a recital or two on American radio. Would you be able to offer
any more information on these broadcasts?
The AAAMD, in agreement with INAF,
recently published a CD of French Radio broadcasts, made by M. Dupré and
Bernard Gavoty in 1949-50. Subsequently, we approached the BBC to enquire
to broadcasts Dupré made with them. Barely a handful of recordings were
found in their archives. It would be wonderful to find more archived
broadcasts and interviews, or private recordings of Marcel Dupré.
It is difficult to find contacts who may help us. I don't even know which
broadcasters in the US to approach. If you could offer advice, it would be
wonderful. If you have an idea of who to contact - an individual,
broadcaster, or association who may hold such recordings - I would be very
grateful to you.
