    This is the only recording I have of Alcina, I love Joyce DiDonato, so maybe will pick up a copy of the Archiv CD.

    I realized I hadn't listened to Mozart in a while, so decided to catch up:

    Unfortunately, the summer heat and humidity seems to have set in here in Washington, which has a real downside in reducing the duration of my walks.

    I finally listened to my own copy of this. A perfect line-up of voices for me: Natalie Dessay, Ann Hallenberg, Sonia Prina and Pavol Breslik.

    Yesterday's listening:

    Although in stereo, the sound on this didn't strike me as particularly good - although Tito Gobbi and Victoria De Los Angeles are terrific. Which probably is a factor in that SB may take a couple of listens before it grows on me.

    I hadn't listened to Ariadne auf Naxos in quite some time, and I always forget how good it is. I especially like this CD set - Gundula Janowitz and James King are outstanding!

    Another recording with gorgeous singing that somehow gets overshadowed by other operas.

    Rienzi - I'm determined to take something from this 4 hour onslaught. All I seem to hear is people singing "Rienzi! Rienzi!"
