4 In his desire to detach the interlude from the opera for concert purposes, Beecham rescored the piece for a slightly smaller orchestra than the one used in the opera. It is this version we hear most frequently today. For more recent recordings of the entire opera, Meredith Davies’ recording on EMI (1972) with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (which is now available on a remastered recording from EMI) and Mackerras's magnificent recording on Argo (1990) with the ORF Symphonieorchester (which also found its way onto DVD from the production for television) are well worth further scrutiny. There are also two Beecham interpretations that can be studied. EMI issued a studio recording (CMS 7 64386 2) as part of the ‘Beecham Edition’ in 1948 and a further recording, not actually intended for commercial release, made by the BBC (also in 1948) is available from SOMM Recordings, SOMM-Beecham 12-2.
