Auf die Idee, etwas über Hermann Weil zu schreiben, bin ich ursprünglich gekommen, nachdem ich Kontakt mit seiner Enkelin, Barbara Weil, bekommen habe. Sie schickte mir ein paar schöne Fotos, die im nächsten (bzw. zeitlich hiervor veröffentlichten Artikel) zu finden sind.
Above you find the second Volume of the Herman Weil recordings. It gives his recordings for Odeon, as far as I have access to them. Four titles and a rare test pressing are still missing from my playlist. If you have one of the missing recordings, please let me know. There are not many interesting titles, as he recorded some of the titles also for Vox and Grammophone, and most of the duets with Bosetti have been published before in my blog from an old Discophilia LP. But - I try to give you access to everything he recorded, and so these recordings have their value, too. I have a dozen German sung Bajazzo-Prologues, but Weil's one is one of the best.
The next publication, I hope coming soon, will be more interesting: the second act of Tannhäuser as recorded for Odeon in 1910 with Herman Weil as Wolfram, Annie Krull, Leon Rains and Fritz Vogelstrom.
I started the Hermann Weil project after I got contact to Herman Weil's granddaughter Barbara Weil. She has sent me a few familiy fotos, which are published in the next article, which I will publish with this one. So please read on...
