    I was startled by how much Fabbricini sounds like Callas sometimes.

    PS: WE NEED MORE PORPORA

    Funny, I've just been listening his skool mate (prompted by the upcoming CDs thread). This is directed and performed by specialists, is a studio quality recording (actually a live performance from Inssbruck Festival 2010) and is really an excellent opera and performance. I would say a must have for fans of that skool...

    Ooh, I just remembered I haven't listened to the works by my favorite composer from Barcelona for a couple of months, at least.

    This is more like it. Ewa Podleś and Sumi Jo are fantastic. Podleś's range is eye popping and her agility a thing of wonder. If you haven't got it BUY BUY BUY, it's Naxos so very affordable.

    ^ That was my first Tancredi, obtained for $2 at a library sale. I also have the sets with Marilyn Horne and with Vesselina Kasarova (this one featuring Eva Mei). I like them all and can't figure a favorite.
