    Saturday's walk:

    Name:  ArmidaFleming.jpg
Views: 52
Size:  50.9 KB

    I have a couple of Armida recordings and have to admit that this is one Rossini opera that doesn't quite make it with me. I recall seeing the Met's HD broadcast several years ago and thinking it wonderful. The problem here may be the opera depends on four great Rossini tenors - the guys here are only ok.

    Les Indes galantes has probably the most infectious tune of all of opera, though. You'll be whistling this for the rest of your life. When you least expect you'll see yourself skipping down the street while it plays on your mind.

    I also love Les Fêtes d'Hébé; it's got poetry, music and dance, it's fabulous! I probably have listened to that one the most in the past couple of years. It's the sort of recording that made me want to listen to everything Sophie has recorded.

    On my work commute, I started a lesser known Dvorak opera, a rental from the library. I know nothing about it other than that it's a "folk opera". The box has the libretto but I haven't really found the time to dig into it.



    This is part of my new "composer-of-the-month" listening project

    I'm very happy to hear the tendon is healing and you're walking more now.

    Two of the operas by Donizetti that I'm enjoying most recently, both on the fabulous Opera Rara label;

    Though not listening to opera now as I'm listening to the cricket as Alex Hales has literally smashed the ball and some replacements are brought out...
