Solti 1964, Gavazzeni 69?[edit]

The recordings of Solti 1964, Gavazzeni 69 seem to have been deleted. What was the reason for this? This is, of course, not a 'selected' discography. --Kleinzach 23:46, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

OK. Now corrected. --Kleinzach 00:22, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh thank you so much for your approbation in this matter ! If you look carefully you will see that the Solti set was never deleted but as it dates from 1963 it was moved to its rightful place, the Gavazzeni set dates from 1960 not 1969 so I replaced it with the 1967 EMI set with the intention of adding it to its rightful place when I had the missing info and I DO KNOW THIS IS NOT A SELECTED DISCOGRAPHY ! --Marleau (talk) 13:42, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Recording with Aragall, Weikl, Popp[edit]

There is a recording with Aragall, Weikl and Popp that I cannot find on the discography. Conductor: Gardelli. Not sure of the year.Cimabue13 (talk) 16:49, 16 October 2010 (UTC)Cimabue13

This recording was made in 1985 and reviewed in the March 1989 issue of Gramophone: see here. Rgds. --Francesco Malipiero (talk) 17:26, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
I went ahead and added it to the list.4meter4 (talk) 20:40, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

References ???[edit]

It is my opinion that the references section in this article should be deleted. It has only one "reference", which is a list of recordings compiled by one customer at I don't think this sort of list qualifies as a reference, but others may disagree --Francesco Malipiero (talk) 17:40, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

I agree that the amazon ref is bad. I replaced it with a more reputable source.4meter4 (talk) 20:32, 16 October 2010 (UTC)


What is the reference for the 1983 Karajan recording? AFAIK Karajan never performed or recorded Rigoletto (except selections). I think this entry is fake. --FordPrefect42 (talk) 14:10, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

There were repeatedly problems with IPs adding bootleg or fake recordings into opera discographies. I couldn't find any Deutsche Grammophon +"435 639-2". It should be removed. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 14:27, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
Removed. It may be reinserted, reliable sources provided. --FordPrefect42 (talk) 19:11, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

And the catalogue number is? Any supporting sources? -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 12:43, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
I've searched and searched and found no evidence of this recording. With all the star power listed, it should be easy to prove... I say it's a fake.4meter4 (talk) 23:26, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
