    I've been itching for some more Strauss to keep my sole Strauss opera recording company (Der Rosenkavalier w Schwarzkopf cond. Karajan) and I think I got a good deal on this:



    Was $14.95 but the guy in the shop let me have it for $13.45. Awesome.

    Verdi: Nabucco - Glossop, Souliotis, Ward, Mauro; Davis. London, 1972






    Welcome birthday present, I attended that performance.
    Some nasty people booed but she (Elena ) stood firm and ended in style .

    Wow! Lucky you to have seen Elena S. on stage. Why would people boo?

    Oh. 1972. Elena's voice was showing significant strain by that point. Productions I've seen where people booed (mostly in Germany) generally were focused on production and staging issues - I've never seen a singer booed. Shame on them.

    Remember also people had the Decca recording in their minds(1965) and to be fair, she was more a recording artist.
    Not as in bad acting but more in singing different roles to much to soon.
    The voice decreased very fast alas.

    This ain't a purchase per se, but I am so excited by this new acquisition that I shall post it here anyway. A friend of mine sent it to me via the interwebs. As I am relatively technologically incompetent compared to other 18 year olds, I am rather afraid of using file sharing services...but I am growing used to the idea of using the internet to send things other than typed words.

    That's the one that was commissioned by Gergiev to mark the opening of Mariinsky 2, isn't it? Tell us more.

    Yaaaaay more Strauss! I have read in a few places that Kiri Te Kanawa is the best Strauss singer there is, especially for Arabella, so I got this:

    Another visit to the local secondhand book/CD store. Among other purchases, the classic Così for $9. Listening now: definitely no buyer's remorse!

    I pawned the sofa so I could buy a couple items highly touted by you fine folks. Don't worry, the floor is perfectly comfortable!

    Be sure to report back on what you think about Die Entführung aus dem Serail. It's a solid favorite for some of us!

    I dunno why I take any notice of Clayton, he's clearly potty, but somehow he got me to buy these. I know he is particularly fond of Artaserse, but Sesostri has Tarver and Randle and I lov'em both so had to get the lot.

    Terradellas: Artaserse

    Anna Maria Panzarella (Artaserse), Céline Ricci (Arbace), Marina Comparato (Mandane), Sunhae Im (Semira), Augustin Prunell-Friend (Artabano) & Mariví Blasco (Megabise)
    La Real Compañía Ópera de Cámara, Juan Bautista Otero



    Terradellas: Sesostri
    Sunhae Im (Sesostri), Alexandrina Pendatchanska (Nitocri), Kenneth Tarver (Amasi), Ditte Andersen (Artenice), Rafaella Milanesi (Orgonte) & Tom Randle (Fanete)
    Real Compañía Opera de Cámara, Juan Bautista Otero



    And then three is a nice number:

    Telemann: Flavius Bertaridus, König der Longobarden
    Maite Beaumont (Flavius Bertaridus), Nina Bernsteiner (Rodelinda), Ann-Beth Solvang (Flavia), Jürgen Sacher (Orontes), Antonio Abete (Grimoaldus), Katerina Tretyakova (Cunibert), David DQ Lee (Onulfus), Melissa Petit (Regimbert/Schutzgeist)
    Academia Montis Regalis, Alessandro de Marchi
