    Baroque seems to be a good match for walking, so thought I would go with one that doesn't otherwise get much air:

    I always have a dream of a gym where instead of playing thumpy-thumpy music they regaled us with Baroque bravura arias. I'd be a life member.

    Seemed to be about time to have another whirl of this. Catchy Russian dances, a pure maiden, a yearning tenor cut down in the flower of his youth, and a sexy badass bass-baritone, who could resist?

    Rubinstein: The Demon

    Alexander Polyakov (Demon), Nina Lebedeva (Tamara), Evgeny Vladimirov (Gudal), Alexey Usmanov (Sinodal), Nina Grigorieva (Nanny), Nina Derbina (Angel), Yury Elnikov (Messenger), Boris Morozov (Old Servant)
    Academic Choir of the USSR All-Union Radio, Symphony Orchestra of the USSR All-Union Radio, Boris Khaikin

    day four and I'm still stuck on Terradellas' Artaserse.

    If any one would like to know more about this composer, where he is from for instance, please let me know.

    I really must give this a go; I've had it on my wish list ever since you first started talking about it.

    Is the above the best version? I've got the Wexford on my list as well.

    I'm still contemplating the Wexford - but it is live, so you might not like it. So far I have been pretty happy with the version I've got, even if the soprano is a bit screechy (but we don't care about sopranos, do we?).

    Meanwhile, you might care to watch Dima doing his sexy badass baritone act in a semi-staged version in Moscow. And there's a good tenor.

    There aren't a whole lot of recordings of this opera out there, and Renee about owns this role. I've also got the famous Callas live recording - which has lousy sound - and the Claudio Scimone/Cecilia Gasdia recording which is pretty good.

    After being stuck in a probably unhealthy eight or nine cycles of Terradellas, I decided the only way to fight fire is with fire*

    Vinci, Leonardo: Artaserse
    Philippe Jaroussky (Artaserse), Max Emanuel Cencic (Mandane), Franco Fagioli (Arbace), Valer Barna-Sabadus (Semira), Yuriy Mynenko (Megabise), Daniel Behle (Artabano)

    *You should never tackle a real fire with fire. If it safe to do so, you should use the appropriate equipment such as a fire extinguisher, otherwise call the fire brigade.
    Playing an opera CD will definitely not help.

    How do you like that? Clayton steals my thunder! I don't typically listen to that much baroque, but it is kind of catchy while walking. This is the second baroque recording I've cued up in less than a week:

    Tonight, this. Just arrived. 1994 release, the earlier of two Don Pasquale's with Mei, the later one I have on DVD, but haven't watched yet. In fact, tonight will be my first time listening to Don Pasquale.

    Now we are talking
    Even years later on DVD her performance is outstanding.

    This has been in my ULP for ages as well. Remedied that this morning and it is FAB-U-LOUS and great marching music too!!!

    I'm pretty diappointed with myself that the spell I tried to cast didn't work so I went to consult with someone who might be able to help

    Handel: Alcina
    Joyce DiDonato (Alcina), Maite Beaumont (Ruggiero), Karina Gauvin (Morgana), Sonia Prina (Bradamante), Kobie Van Rensburg (Oronte), Laura Cherici (Oberto), Vito Priante (Melisso)
    Il Complesso Barocco, Alan Curtis 2007
