    Beside Ms. DiDonato... who is marvelous... I find that a good many of my favorite contemporary singers are mezzo-sopranos:

    Joyce DiDonato
    Cecilia Bartoli
    Elīna Garanča
    Susan Graham
    Magdalena Kožená
    Lorraine Hunt Lieberson
    Anne Sofie von Otter
    Frederica von Stade
    Waltraud Meier

    A majority of these women are among the most intelligent and discerning when it comes to musical selection... often at the heart of the rediscovery of forgotten or less-well-known works. But then there's also a richness to the mezzo voice... a sensuality... like chocolate... akin to the clarinet.

    Absolutely, at least as far as female singers are concerned. I like your list, and I'd like to add a few of mine:

    Daniela Barcellona
    Nathalie Stutzmann
    Marie-Nicole Lemieux
    Stéphanie d'Oustrac
    Stephanie Blythe
    Romina Basso
    Sarah Connolly
    Alice Coote
    Sara Mingardo
    Angelika Kirschlager
    Sonia Prina

    And two young'uns who've made an impression on me:
    Hanna Hipp
    Elizabeth DeShong
    Natalie

    Let us not forget (for at least part of her career) Anna Caterina Antonacci.

    Finally, a DVD of Die Tote Stadt with a well-thought-out production and excellent singers. This is an A+++ in my book, watched it twice in a row and I think I'll need another spin.

    They're on my list DA.
    Not sure of the sound on the ROH one though.

    The sound on the 60's Bayreuth set is very good. Really one of the best Rheingolds I've EVER heard.

    A 62 Kempe cycle is coming out too.
    Whats a Wagner nut to do?

    I was wrong; Itullian not "a bit of a Wagner fan".

    Itullian = "Wagner nut"

    "...Unlike most popular nuts like the Brazilian nut or the Macademia nut, the Wagner nut can be found all over the world... ...and is slightly more fruitier..."

    I nominate Itullian as my "go to" for further info on Wagner...

    The sound samples do sound very good for live Bayreuth, wish they sold a complete 1960 & 1962 Kempe Ring set since $3.99 shipping for each opera from Amazon USA is a cost killer.......
