    Spent most of today cooking for the freezer and needed something easy and familiar to listen to. Started off with this to go with the lentil and chunky veg soup:



    then to accompany the chilli bean sauce:

    I neglected to report on yesterday's listening:


    Yet again, I reached into that bottomless box of operas


    Name:  DasNachtlagerinGranada.jpg
Views: 148
Size:  22.2 KB


    This proved to be a very pleasant listen - mid 19th century Romantic, I think, by Conradin Kreutzer - sweet enough to almost rate as an operetta. Very sweetly sung.


    For yesterday's walk, some pleasant time spent with Marilyn Horne:


    Name:  TancrediHorne.jpg

    I believe Tancredi might be better known than some of Rossini's other Opera Seria, but I don't like it as well as some others: Semiramide, La Donna del Lago, Zelmira and Matilde di Shabran, among others.


    Then, for today's walk:

    I love this opera! After it was finished, I still had a subway ride back home ahead of me, so cued it up for an encore.

    An absolutely wonderful La Sonnambula. The vocals are fantastic.

    I found this hard to like - I am so enamored with Maria Callas singing Amina that everyone else sounds too foreign. I love the opera, though, and since it's been a couple of years since I last listened to it, will cue it up for a listen today.

    Part of it may be the excellent sound quality of this disk compared to other sets that I have: 3 Callas sets, 2 Devia sets, Lind, and the NAXOS set.

    I've had my eye on this recording for some time -- Wunderlich as Belmonte, minus Erika Köth’s Minnie Mouse Konstanze on the DG version. And Reri Grist as Blonde!

    This year at Violin camp I had to do less organising and chivying as my daughter is now 13 and more independent (she even practised without being nagged!!!), So I had time to listen to these great recordings:

    Listening to two very different operas recently but both among my favourites (that aren't Puccini or Verdi). Each time I listen to Written on Skin I become more impressed and want 2018 to come sooner. Name:  81TDe43DF9L._SL1500_.jpg

    The protector has some particularly beautiful music despite being a thoroughly unlikable character (Like Scarpia!)
    My other opera has been

    This opera may be getting a lot of i pod time because of its subject matter feeling incredibly prominent in my life currently (though I love it anyway). Gremin's aria remains one of my favourite bits.
    "Non sono in vena" Rodolfo summing up P.B's feelings on his dissertation.
