    What opera have you purchased recently?

    Related thread to "listening now" tell us what you have been buying.......
    (obsessive buyers confess your sins here)

    I made a couple purchases today:





    I have another Farnace recording on Naive label, but I jump at any chance to buy new release by conductor Diego Fasolis........

    I had an Amazon Gift Card for an early Christmas present so I've just ordered these.



    I used to have a CD of bassoon concertos but it got lost during one of my house moves & I'm really looking forward to hearing these again.

    Mefistofele is a bit of an obsession & one more to add to my collection.

    During the last year I purchased every Tebaldi studio release I could find......love every one (including this one!) She has the very best male supporting casts

    Decca has collected all of her Puccini studio recordings in this great boxset, highly recommended:
    (very cheap Amazon USA)

    Recent viewing of Netrebko Anna Bolena blu ray caused a "mini" Donizetti tudor queen buy streak, I have the Sills, Callas, Sutherland so Gruberova was purchased:

    Other than Anna's Anna, my recent purchases which remain unseen and unheard thanks to the construction work, are these two:

    I wanted to buy cigarettes but I landed at music shop before, to ask that blondie guy if my Chopin scores arrived and they weren't there, I'm always embrassed to leave shop without buying anything (must work on asertiveness) so I've asked him if he got that new solo CD of Mariusz Kwiecień, "Slavic Heroes" and he had it AND IT TURNED OUT THAT IT COSTS EXACTLY AS MUCH AS I HAD IN MY WALLET so I got it and Kwiecień saved me from starting smoking again (for now) as I had no more money to buy cigarettes, I'm grateful, will be even more grateful if this CD will prove to be worth of it's price. Perhaps I'll review it on the forum after listening carefully.

    Gatti's conducting is also a massive plus point in the Lehnhoff Elektra as well.

    I like everything except the Marfa who is too old by about 2 generations and looks like a Remuera "lady-who-lunches" who has driven her SUV to the wrong set.

    I'm enjoying seeing my little veal chop in a non-heroic role. He makes quite a nasty spoiled rapy boy.

    He's rather yummy isn't he. I'm always going to think of him as a little veal chop now.
