The talk on Twitter yesterday turned, as it often does, to Fritz Wunderlich, and the question of a complete Eugene Onegin recording came up. As far as I know, there’s only one: a live 1962 performance from Munich, with Hermann Prey in the title role, Ingeborg Bremert as Tatyana, Brigitte Fassbaender as Olga, and Joseph Keilberth conducting the Orchestra and Chorus of the Bavarian State Opera.

Wunderlich also made a pair of German-language highlights discs around this same time, the first for EMI in 1961 (with Prey, Melitta Muzsely, and Gottlob Frick, and coupled with selections from Pique Dame), the second for Deutsche Grammophon four years later (with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Evelyn Lear, Brigitte Fassbaender, and Martti Talvela).
