Thank you for the very informative reference.
It is educational to know that there is a recording done by Neumann when he was the music director of the Leipzig Gewanhaus Orchestra.
I am curious about the performance difference(s) of Janowitz under Karajan and Celibidache, also the difference(s) of Te Kanawa under Davis and Solti. Based on the recordings I currently have, I really admire Karajans control of the melody flow for the very FIRST time (usually I dont totally appreciate his readings). Regarding Te Kanawas recordings, I attended her live performance of The Marriage of Figaro in New York years ago. To certain degree, I didnt feel the sadness of a lonely royal lady. So for those who have these recordings, please kindly share your experiences with us.
Thanks again for all your input.
