    I'm carrying a little personal project entitled DISCOVERING ROSSINI OPERAS THAT FLÓREZ DIDN'T RECORD, I've heard Ermione before but who would care, it's just a prelude to the the project. Very good recording, btw, musically I like it much more than DVD performance with Antonacci (only lack of Bruce Ford hurts).

    Hey, and think that in the old days of Talk Classical, you were a fierce opponent of my assessment of Rossini as a musical genius.

    Yes, but then Couchie came and replaced me on the position of Pretentious Wagnerite, so I was free to follow my true inclinations which led me to bel canto and similiar stuff that I'm into now.

    Well, I can only say: "I told you so." And I'd add - "If only the youth listened to us, old geezers, in all our wisdom!"

    Yes, I did. But you didn't listen. You thought that old geezers didn't have anything interesting to say.

    No, I remember well, you just said LISTEN TO ROBERTO DEVEREUX VERY DRAMATIC and it didn't work I had to get to L'Elisir d'Amore to finally understand that Donizetti is master of fierce dramaticism expressed in daring harmonies and rich, overwhelming orchestration.

    Some lovely duets by less-well-known Baroque composers (Bononcini, Mancini, Porpora, Alessandro Scarlatti, etc...) sung by to outstanding countertenors.

    Not "just" - I actually had a whole thread about underestimated Rossini.

    Been enjoying some Aureliano Pertile:



    I love his given name, but his singing even more. Great "Ah, si ben mio" in video above.
