    Mozart: Don Giovanni, K527
    Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau (Don Giovanni), Sena Jurinac (Donna Anna), Ernst Haeflinger (Don Ottavio), Maria Stader (Donna Elvira), Karl Christian Kohn (Leporello), Walter Kreppel (Il Commendatore), Ivan Sardi (Masetto), Irmgard Seefried (Zerlina)
    RIAS-Kammerchor Radio-Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Ferenc Fricsay
    Recorded Jesus-Christus-Kirche, Berlin September/October 1958
    One of my favorite recordings of this opera (even if Maria Stader's Italian has a pronounced German accent).

    after cooking a terrible birthday dinner for my sister, I needed some opera therapy to recover and chose the tragic (but beautiful)

    Name:  l'amour de loin - Kent Nagano 2008, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin.jpg
Views: 97
Size:  40.4 KB

    Saariaho: L'Amour de loin
    Daniel Belcher, tenor (Jaufré Rudel), Ekaterina Lekhina, soprano (Clémence) & Marie-Ange Todorovitch, mezzosoprano (Le Pèlerin)
    Rundfunkchor Berlin & Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Kent Nagano

    yup, the opera fan turns to death and tragedy or such misery for a pick-me-up...

    Dauvergne: Hercule mourant (Hercules Dying)
    Andrew Foster-Williams (Hercule), Véronique Gens (Déjanire), Emiliano Gonzalez Toro (Hilus), Edwin Crossley-Mercer (Philoctète), Julie Fuchs (Ïole), Jaël Azzaretti (Dircé), Alain Buet (La Jalousie, Jupiter), Jennifer Borghi (Junon) & Romain Champion (Le Grand Prêtre de Jupiter)

    This is a gem of (late) French baroque brought to us in a fabulous production by specialists; a strong recommendation for fans of French baroque, Les Talens Lyriques or any of the fabulous cast...

    Yesterday's walk involved listening to an old favorite:

    The final reprise of "Marietta's Lied" is, as always, heartbreaking.


    Then, this morning, because no walk today:

    To be honest I'm not a Currentzis fan having been completely underwhelmed by his Nozze so not going to spend money on this one.

    I have the Currentzis Don on my hands but still haven't gathered the courage...

    I like that it's black, though.

    ^ Glad to hear as I just ordered that set in anticipation of seeing Joyce do it live next April.

    I remember when I first listened to that Ariodante — I was just beginning to delve into baroque opera then — I was absolutely gobsmacked by Joyce's Con l'ali di costanza. I thought that was the most effortless coloratura ever.

    Today, years and a terrifying amount of money after, I'm no so hyperbolic about it but it's still damn impressive.

    like todays listening, the best cast for the greatest composer's most beautiful opera with the loveliest melodies ever!

    ok, I may have stretched that one a bit but it is very good

    ^ What a gaudy tattoo she has! Or did she accidentally put her hand on a red hot ornate heater grate?
