    I don't know. I have not heard any of his works yet but this one probably does sound the most interesting.

    I understand it was a great success at the time, performed 127 times at the Opéra and Berlioz was a fan of this work.

    It seems young Padawan Salieri learned well from master Gluck...

    No, mezzo-forte (? if this is a correct term) with the rich golden sound of Del Monaco, I like it very much.

    Yes so in my imagination, I also went to have a coffee and chocolate cake in an very old Vienna coffee house, and the coffee was served in Augarten coffee cups.

    I, on the other hand, am in the country of my youth:



    Personally not my favourite version for idiosyncratic reasons. Don't like either the timbre of either Montserrat Caballé (too chickeny) or of Mady Mesplé (too French canary), although intellectually I know they are both singing superlatively well. I think it would appeal to many others. And it is a great opera.

    Solti being the awesome opera conductor he is:



    I wish Bartók was an opera composer like Verdi and Wagner etc. in terms of output

    It is a good set; try OR's Caterina Cornaro, Donizetti's last opera. Written when his illness was getting pretty bad and not much liked by the academic set, it is very good indeed from my perspective.

    More 20th century stuff. This time Tippett. I've never heard any of his operas before so this is sure to be interesting:
