    Surprisingly, I haven't listened to Così in months. And even though I can recite the libretto backwards, whenever I come back to it after some time I'm genuinely astonished that is is even better than I remembered!

    After watching the video, this one is much more appreciated on CD:

    The old Met radio broadcast traveling across the decades through a mist of hiss and pops. But the voices of Melchior and Flagstad, even partly shrouded, still emerging golden-toned and glorious.

    suffering from too unstable interweb connection to post much but amongst the usual suspects,

    Cosi (Jacobs)
    Rinaldo (Jacobs)
    Esther (John Butt, Dunedin consort)
    Samson (Nicholas McGegan)

    and now on one of the usual suspects...

    the Solti one

    hope to be back soon with a better interweb connection

    Excellent version of this lovely exciting opera. I have the DVD of the same cast, but it's better as audio.

    Today was the Journey back down to Cornwall for graduation my emotions on the issue fighting each other . On the one hand I am happy to graduate on the other hand I am going to miss the people I got to know over the three years doing my course even if I will still be in close contact should my masters application be a success with many. Either way my journey down was a rewarding one as I indulged myself with my favourite operas. First

    My favourite Verdi opera. It remains unsurpassed and with every listen I love it more even my increased affection for Un Ballo In Maschera and Il Trovatore have yet to topple it from prime position. However it is not my favourite opera(s) that recognition belong's to my second listen

    Each opera in the Triptych is stupendous. I rank them all as amazing in their own way. Together in one sitting they reach new hieghts as yet unsurpassed by any other piece I have heard. I had goosebumps at various points through Il Tabarro and Suor Angelica and was mouthing the various parts of Schicchi (as per usual) without doubt my favourite opera(s)! All in all a great start to my graduation weekend(ish).

    I would recommend it for the sheer lack of complete Porpora operas on record. There are some nasty reviews around so I was a little wary. It isn't the best recording out there, that is true, but it's decent especially when you consider how little Porpora we get!

    The music is lovely. We need more.

    Apologies as this is a bit of a saga but today I listened to this



    because about five years ago, on another forum, member Aramis recommended an opera to me. Aramis is Polish and the opera he recommended was Straszny dwór (The Haunted Manor) by Stanisław Moniuszko so I bought that set. I totally fell in love with it. It's the only opera which I've loved on first listen, usually takes me a while to like something. Finally after five years of longing to see it, in November I'm seeing it in Warsaw and in the opera house where it originally premiered. Am I excited? Just a bit!
