    Wonderful opera. Thought I'd listen to this version to remind myself of how KFV sounds in the role.

    Okay, I follow Hoffmann again today.

    Besides, I haven't listened to this for over three weeks.

    For me, today was :

    Tebaldi: La Tabaldi

    Puccini: Tosca
    Antonietta Stella
    Gianni Poggi
    GiuseppeTaddei
    Ferruccio Mazoli

    The sound quality was not so good on the copy I have, but I would like to get a better copy.

    [Attila - Muti recording]

    Although I have not heard any other version of Attila, I would be very confident in recommending it.

    I chose this recording because of Ramey. Two of my encounters with Ramey was his Scarpia and Méphistophélès, both at Covent Garden twenty odd years ago. Of course both left lasting impressions (or scars).
    He does not fail here, he is Attila the Hun as I would picture him. A voice that I can almost feel guilty for admiring Attila a little too much. Cheryl Studer was a voice I was not so familiar with when I bought this but she has a beauty and passion with dramatic power that makes a Odabella we are equally (well almost) impressed with. I like very much Neil Shicoff's voice, he has a habit of being in many favourite recordings and he performs a romantic Foresto.
    Again, I have not heard any other interpretations but Muti's direction makes a wonderful epic drama with the orchestration.

    Another Verdi opera I wonder why it is not performed more...

    Not to mention that Ramey has the right kind of Chest.

    I think the user agreement states quite clearly that you are supposed to add "cough, cough".

    I went out to youtube and found it and attempted to download it but YTD threw it's monthly fit with a failure. It should clear up in a day two and I will try again.

    With all the lovely pictures of Ramey I decided to listen to Mefistofele. I have 2 with Ramey and choose this one.

    San Francisco 1989
    Samuel Ramey
    Gabriela Benackova
    ,Dennis O'Neill
    Daniel Harper
    Douglas Wunsch
    Judith Christin

    I think I prefer my other version with Anne Sophie von Otter. And of course Joyce DD in the DVD.

    Prompted by Adrian's viewing, will listen to this on the morning commute. Great marching music.
