    It's the Curtis recording of Alcina; it get's me every time!

    The wife sometimes calls me a hampster, after we once saw a documentary that told us the hampster scares very easily and can die of a heart attack as a consequence!

    This is a good recording, but... I just don't really get Schumann. I'm glad the library bought it rather than me!

    I got distracted again

    wha was I talkin' 'bout?

    Oh yes, what I have been listening to lately...

    I think I was more in a Rohan mood this morning than a Stuarda mood. Well that in turned put me in a Katya mood, so following morning listening

    Then because I can only stay away from baroque for so long, I decided on Handel, Orlando but which one?

    This one has the benefit of a lovely Dorinda...

    Interesting. How big a role is Enrico and also Il Visconte di Suze? Are the roles big enough to satisfy my bass and baritone addiction?

    PS Does it include a libretto?

    Well that's a big requirement!

    Actually it's quite a small piece, even by Donizetti, barely an 90 mins and is more the Conte and Maria. Enrico has just one aria and the Visconte is a small part.
    I do think it is a lovely opera with beautiful melodies of his later works and as most, this is a very good production by Opera Rara which comes with book including full libretto, synopsis, essays, history of productions and (for clayton) pictures.

    Well the recording itself is excellent, and it's very melodic (if dramatically a bit saccharine). It's just that it goes in one ear and out the other with me.
