Live Recordings

The following pages present current singers in live performances. The selections are taken from recitals in Belgium which I found for one reason or another exceptional.

Important: All the selections are in mp3 format. However, you'll see that the selections are linked to files with an mp-extension. This is done, because the server where the files are placed doesn't allow mp3 files. After you've downloaded a file, you'll have to change the extension back to mp3. Additionally, there seems to be a problem when you download the files using a Netscape 4.x browser. Before you download a file, you could use this reasonably small (166 kB) test file to check whether the file doesn't get corrupted during download [for the curious: the test file is part of the piano intro of Morgen].
