    This is an extremely cheerful piece about the river Seine. Go figure.

    many appo loggies (as shorty-greasy-spot-spot would have pronounced) for my absence but I am still suffering from unstable internet connection. I think it's due to the population expansion in the area and the necessary network capacity adjustments...

    I'm of course listening to much opera, of which most is the usual suspects (seventeenth/ early eighteenth century compositions) so I can't post anything different from what I normally post; except this one was pulled from the tea cabinet today

    Name:  Bellini - I Puritani.jpg
Views: 180
Size:  62.7 KB

    Bellini: I Puritani
    Joan Sutherland (Elvira), Luciano Pavarotti (Arturo Talbot), Piero Cappuccilli (Riccardo Forth), Nicolai Ghiaurov (Giorgio Walton), Anita Caminada (Enrichetta de France), Gian Carlo Luccardi (Gualtiero Walton), Renato Cazzaniga (Bruno Robertson)
    Chorus of Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London Symphony Orchestra,
    Richard Bonynge

    It's been a long time since I listened to this. It is ....

    dammit

    words fail me



    AGAIN

    Another lovely day in Washington, DC. Let's see, what did I listen to?

    Oh yes, I remember:


    Name:  ErmioneHorneCaballe.jpg
Views: 201
Size:  33.2 KB

    This live recording from 1987 is good - naturally, with Marilyn Horne and Montsy! Though I don't know why Montsy gets top billing over Marilyn Horne. Go figure.


    Then, because it was a long walk today, I needed a follow up, so, inspired by Florestan:


    Name:  mariastuarda.jpg

    Superb recording with Beverly Sills and Eileen Farrell.

    Superb recording with Beverly Sills and Eileen Farrell.
    The poor Queen of Scots -- one recording label used a likeness of a different Mary Stuart -- Queen Mary II -- as a cover illustration; a second used Holbein's portrait of Anne of Cleves; and this one depicts her cousin, Mary Tudor (Mary I).

    Am about to dig into this after hearing about a recent production of it in Lasaunne and the North American premiere. I'm a sucker for anything about Napoleon's offspring

    And since I'm on this whole 1812/Napoleon jag, I might as well add a little Tchaikovsky/Pushkin to the mix

    Plus I just couldn't resist this Opera Rara morsel that I got for myself as a Birthday Gift (just recently in the last year or two became a fan of their work...now if only they would do a recording of Les Huguenots my life would be complete)

    another odd (for me) one pulled from the tea cabinet

    Name:  Guillaume Tell - Antonino Fogliani 2013 Wildbad Festival.jpg
Views: 130
Size:  50.3 KB

    Rossini: Guillaume Tell
    Andrew Foster-Williams (Tell), Alessandra Volpe (Hedwige), Judith Howarth (Mathilde), Michael Spyres (Arnold), Tara Stafford (Jemmy), Giulio Pelligra (Rodolphe), Artavazd Sargsyan (Ruodi), Nahuel Di Pierro (Walther Fürst/Melchthal), Raffaele Facciolà (Gesler), Marco Filippo Romano (Leuthold)
    Virtuosi Brunensis & Camerata Bach Choir, Poznań, Antonino Fogliani

    as other have said (I think), if this had been arouond at the time of voting on the favourite recording thread, I think I would have recommended this one.

    This morning, while pondering today's walk - predictable, I guess:

    Domingo still in fine tenor form for this set from 1989, with a sparkling Edita Gruberova singing Olympia.

    Yesterday's walk:

    Unfortunately, it started to rain, albeit only intermittent sprinkling - which had not been forecast - but, having no interest in my devices getting wet, threw in the towel and took the Metro (subway) home, without finishing GD.


    The good news is that spring seems to officially be on the way, a good month earlier than normal. This is from the early part of my walk, just before crossing Memorial Bridge over the Potomac:

    Boo, I haven't been listening to anything because all my time is taken up with sound-heavy stuff this semester.

    Sound-heavy stuff? Would you care to elaborate? I can only think that if your studies are very deep (sound heavy?) it might be hard to concentrate and listen to opera.
    Necessities of life: food, water, air, shelter, and opera.

    Haha, no, I meant stuff that requires my audition because they are dependent on or exclusively sound. Things I can't do while listening to music. :/ I don't think "sound-heavy" makes much sense, I'm sorry about that.
