    Currently listening to this:



    A marvelous voice... and her Salome is stupendous... I really must find the entire recording.

    Three CDs include recitatives, which is not insignificant. Anne of Green Gables' comment were quite understandable considering her taste in classical music is probably more towards the Romantics. Beginning to explore Handel with Alcina is a good start.

    One day I would like to sit down with (Professor) Alan Curtis and have a long, long chat.

    For some reason today is a Beethoven day for me, perhaps anticipating his birthday next month. This morning it was the Eroica, conducted by Harnoncourt, and right now it is the Rasumovsky quartet, played by the Alban Berg Quartet.

    My initial dislike for Alagna came from his "image" and performances of Italian music I disliked, mainly bel canto. But digging his French music recordings, my view radically changes. Listening to this CD you just can't deny that it's world class tenor with great voice singing there, and the music, often little known (Alfred Bruneau? ), is wonderful as well.

    Currently listening to this disc:



    In this Gala concert version of Die Fledermaus, which became something of a tradition, after Count Orloffsky proposes a toast to his guests, there follows an arranged entertainment... a special Gala concert given by some special guest performers including Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Nicolai Gedda, Ljuba Welitsch, Lisa Della Casa and Erich Kunz. There is a 1960 Gala recording of Die Fledermaus by Karajan...



    ...as well which features guests including Renata Tebaldi, Birgit Nilsson, Teresa Berganza, Joan Sutherland, Leontyne Price, Jussi Björling, and Ljuba Welitsch. How's that for a real "dream team"?

    I LOVE this recording! The 'gala' numbers are better performed than the operetta proper! My favorite moments are Simionato and Bastianini hamming their way through 'Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better' from Annie Get Your Gun, and Birgit Nilsson capping 'I Could Have Danced All Night' with a glorious top C(now why didn't Julie Andrews think of that?)!

    Delicious! Too bad Chabrier didn't finish it. Too bad Chabrier didn't compose more.

    Funny how we all differ. There are three voices on this list that are part of my personal "listen with gritted teeth" team.

    The gala is lovely, and there really is nothing like hearing Simionato and Bastianini croon their way through Anything you can do I can do better, but I really can't stand the rest of the recording. I infinitely prefer the Boskovsky recording with Rothenberger and Gedda.

    Why must you always be so mean to Tebaldi, Berganza, and Welitsch?
