    Another man's hell, this time the dead city that is inside Paul's head and grief. Again superb singing by Kollo and Neblett compliments Korngold's beautiful painting that is the backdrop of Paul's emotion.

    Disturbing but only like looking in to a mirror can be disturbing. Man, woman (women) and sexuality and it's place (or lack of it) in the world. A haunting performance by Barbara Hannigan.

    A wonderful opera, a tale of two men's tragedy on opposite ends of the rope, set a against a backdrop of eighteenth century British warship. At the risk of sounding like I am repeating Sospiro's words, again here the music of Britten paints such brilliant music, you can smell the boozy breath of the sailors, the smoke of the guns and taste the tension and the salt in the air.
    And this is the best recording of it, even more than the original one with Pears as Vere.

    Last night on spotify premium I compared many versions of Aida and my two favorite studio versions overall are Muti and Solti (1st version) with both conductors being a major positive factor......I find many of the 1950s versions too slowly paced like Erde (Tebaldi) Decca, a bold touch is needed!




    The best kept "secret" great version (live) in excellent sound.......

    I have that great cast. I also have the Tebaldi,Bergonzi, Horne Merrill , also, Callas,Cossotto,Campaneez,Vinco,Ferraro,Cappuccill i,also
    Milanov,DiStefano Warren cast. Which would be the best? I like Tebaldi,Milanov,Simionato. Bergonzi is with Tebaldi and Di Stefano is with Milanov, Callas is with Poggi and then Anita Corridori with Giuseppe Campora ? I dont know the last cast but they are La Scala.
    The Simionato one you can't go wrong as all players are top performers. Maybe I"ll play the Milanov it also has Warren vs Merrill in the Tebaldi cast. Unique voices in all. Sorry being an amateur I don't know that Corridori cast which I suspect she is good so I'll play her just to find out. She's on. a Urania label La Rosa Parodi conductor at La Scala

    Whaat? I have a whole collection from the 1980s, and the worst that has happened is that the foamy thingies that they used to pack in with them have disintegrated into a thousand little sticky dusty pieces. Despite that the CDs all still work.

    It surprised me. It took me a few minutes to figure out what was happening. Big cracking noises coming from the speakers, I thought the amplifier had broken! I last played the CD on 10 March and it was fine then so it suddenly appeared between then.

    Very interesting; Cielo e Mar came out of the rubbish bin! Ricordi was very important for nineteenth century Italian opera.
