Jean de Reszke
I would like to thank Derek Walsh for the picture with McCormack.
I wish to thank Tom Silverbörg for the picture (Cigarettes).
I wish to thank Lynn Samohel for the picture (Siegfried).
According to a french radio program, this high C of Faust is taken from a cylinder found in Bayreuth at Wagners' estate. A small portion of the radio program is with the recording. The two presenters are confusing the Fonotipia recordings and this supposed cylinder of de Reszke.
I wish to thank Eduardo Gabarra for having provided a clean up version of the IRCC recording of the Mapleson cylinder.
I wish to thank Georges Voisin for the High C recording.
