    I have a feeling his Lady Macbeth will be EPIC!

    Also, that Susan Graham CD should be great.

    Anybody intending to buy this? It weighs 7.5kg ~ 16.5 pounds! This is one heavy box, what is in it?

    At least around US$270. The seller would probably charge extra because of its weight for freight.

    I follow soprano Camilla Roberts and baritone Christopher Maltman on Twitter and both have mentioned recording complete operas for Opera-Rara.

    As Aksel mentioned elsewhere Maltman has recorded Rita; Roberts just says 'Donizetti - here I come'. I'll keep checking Opera-Rara's website.

    Thinking about it. I do need a new bowling ball.

    OK, maybe that's not the best idea.

    When will we have a DVD of Die schweigsame Frau starring Natalie Dessay as Aminta? After all, she has sung the role. Well, so has Diana Damrau, but I'm counting on the comical talent of Natalie.

    Another example of competing record labels simultaneously releasing works by a little known composer.

    Antoine Dauvergne (1713-1797). Hercule Mourant (Tragédie lyrique, Paris 1761). Aparté (2 CDs, October 2012). Christophe Rousset, Les Talens Lyriques. Hercule: Andrew Foster-Williams, bass; Déjanire: Véronique Gens, soprano; Hilus: Emiliano Gonzalez-Toro, tenor; Philoctète: Edwin Crossley-Mercer, bass; Dircé: Jaël Azzaretti, soprano; Iole: Julie Fuchs, soprano; Juno: Jennifer Borghi, mezzo-soprano; La Jalousie: Alain Buet, bass; Le Grand-Prêtre de Jupiter: Romain Champion, tenor

    Not a bad thing, per se. It is good that record companies are recording and releasing works by lesser known composers. I would have preferred them to release them steadily over time, rather than "everything in one go". But of course, releasing them all at once is better than never. However, lesser known composers bear the risk of saturating the market, and if sales do not match expectations, then in the long run, no more works released, which is not what we want.

    Yes! Finally!
    Although why is it being released on Fra Musica and not OpusArte?
