    Out of sequence but some pre-performance listening

    Anna, Anna, Anna.

    Plus Hoffmann reminded of this recording so this morning I went to 13th Century Verona.

    Bellini: I Capuleti e I Montecchi
    Anna Netrebko (Giulietta), Elina Garanca (Romeo), Joseph Calleja (Tebaldo), Robert Gleadow (Lorenzo) & Tiziano Bracci (Capellio)
    Wiener Singakademie & Wiener Symphoniker
    Fabio Luisi
    Recorded Vienna Konzerhaus April 2008

    Name:  I Capuleti e i Montecchi - Fabio Luisi 2008, Anna Netrebko, Elina Garanca, Joseph Calleja, Wiene.jpg

    An album that any Anna fan should have.

    Fans of both Anna and Bellini could possibly have even two copies, one to listen to and one to frame and hang on the wall.

    So what happens to fans of Anna, Elina, and Bellini?

    They find this conversation didactic; they already have a secret altar built in their potting shed where they show their affection to this recording every morning whilst pretending to potter around in the garden doing green stuff and have given instruction in their will to be buried with two copies, one to hold and one sealed in an airtight glass container to last for centuries to come. This is also kept secret from their spouse so there can not be any argument about it. Also they joined Cecilia in getting a wholly inappropriate tattoo.

    Okay, it's starting to sound like I am a major Anna fan. I'm not, I just like opera and she has a stunning voice.

    If however she does do the ice bucket to raise awareness for ALS, well then I will probably will buy every opera recording she has made and follow her every performance...

    The sound world of The Triumph of Time and Truth is much closer to Handel's English Oratorios - think Messiah - than to the much earlier "Il trionfo del tempo e del desinganno". To be honest I prefer the Italian version composed in Rome 50 years earlier, but this is a well-sung recording.

    Sophie Bevan, Mary Bevan (sopranos), Tim Mead (countertenor), Ed Lyon (tenor), William Berger (bass)
    Ludus Baroque, Richard Neville-Towle

    I'd consider buying it if it didn't have Placidone foisting his baritone shtick on us.

    I disagree. That tattoo is not inappropriate. I actually have it, too.

    It could work. Give it a go and let me know how it works out.

    It could be fun for the forum if you would report immediately following the trial.
