    oh dear

    put the pictures of the three together and I start to feel like a bit of a nutter.
    Well, Ms. Petibon is one of the top five most beautiful (current) female opera singers in my opinion (that red hair, oh my God!!!), so someone putting three of her cover pictures together will never look to me like a nutter - but rather, someone with very good taste!

    If you just look at her face objectively, she qualifies more for "cute/pretty" rather than "beautiful" but she somehow compensates for it by being extremely attractive and sexy, so the whole package is so compelling that it melts my heart! As for the content of the discs, I'm sure they are also very exciting because she is not only very pretty, but also a very interesting singer.

    I love this interview she gave about her Rosso album, her face is so expressive, and the accent is lovely:

    The sound is a bit like having a Goldfish in your ear
    actually I have never experienced that
    let's say it's a bit like having your head stuck in a Marigold
    but it's a lovely piece
    and started enjoying as soon as Chi ha perduto l'amorosa starts

    Thanks! I forgot to mention Schnittke's opera Life With An Idiot, and Bizet's the Pearl Fishers.

    Gluck - The Great Operas Box.

    http://www.prestoclassical.co.uk/r/Decca/4786899

    I bought it from Importcds much cheaper than Presto.

    Oh great value for money!

    The Paride ed Elena is a beautiful opera and that is a stunning recording. Mireille Delunsch is beautiful in Armide as well, otherwise I'm not familiar with the other recordings so please let me know your thoughts.

    I've only listened to Orfeo ed Euridice once, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. And I have to tell you that I am not much of a baroque listener. But I tried a couple of Gluck operas on YouTube, and they sounded good, so I decided to get the box.

    And lately I've been expanding my listening interests to older music, as I was mostly a 20th century music listener for the past 20 years. I'm going to put on the Paride ed Elena now. Thanks!

    We'll be publishing the autobiographies of Amfortas' ex-wives, all 17 of them. We'll do it as soon as we figure out if we'll call the books autobiographies, or class action lawsuit.

    Saw Robin Tritschler live in Auckland, and these both looked interesting, particularly the Great War song collection:





    In love with Marianna Pizzolato. I know that this comes highly recommended by OL friends.
