Florence Foster Jenkins

The incomparable Florence Foster Jenkins is a treat to hear. Yes she is for real, and soon to be known again after the release of a movie of her life later this year starring Meryl Streep.

From her recordings it is apparent that Jenkins had little sense of pitch or rhythm, and was barely capable of sustaining a note. Her accompanist, Cosmé McMoon, can be heard making adjustments to compensate for her tempo variations and rhythmic mistakes. Her dubious diction, especially in foreign languages, is also noteworthy.

Virtuosi

Back in 1985 the Smithsonian Institute published a 7 LP collection names “Virtuosi’, collecting great recordings from the dawn of electrical processes to the days before stereo. The set was compiled by Richard Freed, my mainstay for classical reviews growing up, and someone with impeccable taste in music and performances. The albums feature signature performances by artists from the first half of the 20th century. Many of the selection are from before the use of tape for recording [yes, 78s] and work their way up to more modern techniques. This collection eschews any pretense of Hi Fidelity in favor of the performance themselves. Actually, all are quite listenable, and I have found only a few that have more modern remasterings that are significantly improved over what is on these records.

The set is still available at eBay and Amazon used at varying prices. If you are a vinyl fan, this is a set well worth investing in, but hopefully the posts here will work as a substitute for those without the box set.
