    Big studio blockbuster, with big sound and big shiny brass section (with a twinkly triangle). Yes, sound and orchestration here is magnificent.

    Robert Dean Smith is my favourite in the title role. Nina Stemme is not. Well I mean not in the title role, that would just be silly. As Elisabeth I perfer Studer's interpretation but that would not fit in this production.
    Janowski's production is fine; it has the romances and it has the dramas. It has the element of fantastical. It is well rounded.
    As a modern concert recording, of course it has great sound and balance too. Yes, I like this one very much too. I need to buy the CD.
    (I heard it on the online streaming service s'poseI-try but these have track interruptions).

    A soggy early summer last year, a mild winter and a beautiful blue sky all last week combined to give one of the most spectacular blooms on the camelia in all the twenty-five years since I purchased it from Longacres in Sunningdale.
    Then a frost came for the last two mornings and the flowers were all blighted, browned and finished. So quick from a celebration of beauty to nothing.

    I watched this Orfeo ed Euridice, but it's a concert version so you're in it for the voices - Franco Fagioli OMG. And the Baroque flautist and oboist.

    Wonderful, absolutely wonderful.
    It has romance, drama, tenderness and excitement; it had the heart rate at 100bpm+ all the way through. Beautiful singing and yes flute, oboe and all the orchestra fantastico.

    Bravo.

    After 3 weeks of German opera, et al., I decided to treat myself to a guilty pleasure while starting to re-build my walking endurance (only did 7.1 miles today). My opera companion in Berlin (who prefers not to walk very far if there are options) considers Rossini "frivolous". I'm trying to bridge those gaps, but so far with only mixed success.

    This just arrived and I am very happy with how this opera lets Mariella Devia display her vocal prowess:
