    Wonderful. Beautiful opera and great cast. Another one from the Virgin Handel boxset. So far I have only listened to this and Deidamia but with these two alone I am quids in. I love it.

Size:  6.1 KB Maite Beaumont sings the part of Zenobia, wife of Radamisto. A performance equalling her Ruggiero in Alcina.

    When I first purchased that Radamisto a few years ago I made the Virgin boxset my next purchase, I was very impressed and the boxset is essential for Handel opera fan.......and will save you some money

    Souliotis and Verrett as lady MacBeth, such a great opera with so many memorable moments, I just marvel at Verdi's masterful control of music and vocals, a timeless masterwork

    Abbado has just gone into the CD player.

    It's quite silly really, how excited I get when I put CD 1 (for any opera) in to the player. I know the music coming but how am I going to react?

    I also love the CD design for the DG Originals collection, printed to look like a vinyl...

    A new recording/s for me:

    I bought this/these recordings based upon the love of operetta expressed in interviews by Klaus Florian Vogt and Rene Kollo. Gorgeous singing, but operettas are not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.

    I really like Vivaldi arias, but I do find the recit that appears on these naive recordings rather dull - tempted to go through my MP3 player and excise it all. Funnily enough I quite enjoy Handel recit.

    D_A is right. This was the first version I bought and although other versions are good, this remains my favourite.

    This is next on my playlist; it is the recording I bought from PC with the damaged booklet that they very kindly replaced.

    However, Sospiro might have taken a turn changing my plans. Now I'm thinking I need to hear the Foscari clan's wretched tale again...

    No cricket tomorrow so we'll see how much opera can be fit in to the day.

    Almost according to plan.

    I did listen to Loredano get his eye and tooth from the Foscari's.

    But then instead of Vivaldi, I went to see (or listen to) another fellow Gluck fan.
