    Cheeky monkeys!

    However, it can be accessed through Tor browser (google should find it, at least until the NSA and GCHQ break it)

    Richard Strauss had the same problem as many other people caught up in Germany in the 30's - how do they earn a living …? I am thinking of people like

    Schwartzkopf - Popp - singers -- the conductors Karajan- Furtwangler et al- who all performed for us in Vienna in the 40's with absolutely NO stigma - and we
    were pleased to hear all of them on the same levels as say Myra Hess - Solomon etc…

    Strange that I can open the link here in Germany, as normally a lot of links, especially Video with Music is not allowed and blocked in Germany.

    To hear Schwartzkopf at anytime was always a pleasant surprise from the first time I heard her in Vienna - there were so many great singers in those days

    as they had to work at it - I recall the American Mezzo Milne who sang a different opera every week in her apprenticeship whereas to-day we have Church and

    Jenkins sing a few different style songs on a CD- then take off for the beaches with a million in the bank - not a patch on Tetrazini - Melba - Musia-

    or Turner at 5'0 nothing who had to stand behind the Orchestra and choir as her voice filled all the halls- now they damn near swallow the Microphone
