    Yes, but I believe that's the only recording of Meistersinger in existence, so he should be safe.

    Baroque enthusiasts (I really mean Clayton) need this:

    Handel: L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato
    Gillian Webster (soprano), Laurence Kilsby (treble), Jeremy Ovenden (tenor), Peter Harvey (baritone), Ashley Riches (bass), William Whitehead (organ). Gabrieli Consort & Players, Paul McCreesh

    The thing with Meistersinger is that, because of its extreme length, it will take me a lot longer to ramp up listening to the level where OCD takes over and I start collecting various performances. A sign it is getting bad is if I go to the Chandos site to see if it is available in English. But I am too caught up in the Hollander opera at the moment.

    You know I had a La Sonnambula binge that only resulted in 7 or 8 sets (would have to go back and count) and a couple DVDs. Nothing will approach my wild run on Fidelios though (20 CD sets, 2 highlights sets, 4 Leonores, the Paer Leonora, and 10 DVDs)--except that I do have somewhere around 40 Beethoven Ninths.

    This would be bad. Very bad for Florestan. Many, many great recordings out there...

    Make sure your kids finish college first.

    The Glyndebourne DVD looks good. I may have to scope it out further over the weekend.

    Well if the kids don't get through college, they will have plenty of opera to listen to while unemployed.

    Hey, this is the first time I recall someone quoting themselves, and within the same post as the original. That is pretty clever--tricky too.

    Well due to recently losing my wallet and going on a long and epic quest to get it back! (Bus to Truro from Falmouth get redirected back after being told in Truro my wallet is in a shack in an industrial estate on the outskirts of Falmouth to which there is no bus hence it can only be reached by walking)On my long lord of the rings style journey I had the opportunity to listen to Un Ballo In Maschera in full again!

    Un Ballo has overtaken La Traviata for me. I just love the atmosphere and the melodies in Un Ballo so much meaning it is rapidly gaining on Rigoletto which is currently my favourite Verdi. The great thing about Un Ballo is that there's no part where the music is not magical in only the way Verdi can be. The question with Un Ballo is not if I'm humming it but which part of it I'm humming at any given time!

    Just came in today's mail. Wonderful! Better (deeper) voiced Dutchman than Klemperer's. Great Senta.


    Includes the Redemption ending.

    Now this one which came in the mail the other day (am on my second listen). John Tomlinson (bass) is a great Hollander. Nice deep voice--probably better than many of the baritones in that role. But Nina Stemme just does not cut it for me as Senta. The ballad was, well to be kind, it was weak. The booklet is informative and includes the libretto in English. It says this recording incorporates all the completed changes that Wagner made in his lifetime. Not sure how that compares to the typical Hollander recording out there though. It does include the Redemption Ending.
