    Another listen out of my box o' operas:

    Moderately interesting opera by Adolphe Adam (1803-56). A very good showcase for Sumi Jo, however, who really sparkles on this recording.

    Adam, btw, might be most famous as the composer of the Christmas carol "O Holy Night".

    I've taken Sir Georg to the supermarket and back. I hope he's enjoyed the walk.

    This recording is quite wonderful. Samuel Ramey in all his full-throated glory.


    Then, today's selection:

    I've decided this recording also is quite wonderful and right up there with Solti and Fricsay.

    My first purchase from Challenge Classics. I'm extremely impressed by the exceptionally high quality of this product. The sonics are superb (it's a SACD hybrid) and the design is that of a hardcover book beautifully bound, but normal CD size. It includes a superb historical essay describing the life and the times Schreker was living in before the rise of Fascism which destroyed his career. And some of his personal notes are included. This opera received 354 performances in over fifty cities between 1920-1925.

    There's nothing like a long walk on a nice day with a great opera playing. And, Nabucco is one of the great listens!
