    Yay - another fan of Simon! So pleased you like it.

    I can't listen to this without thinking of Hoffman's tales...

    For those who don't know; our fellow member Hoffman was an extra in this production when it toured to DC and met Edita who signed a programme for him...

    This release about the same sound quality as the D'oro release. If you want much better sound in a remaster you have to get the very expensive Orfeo release. Anyway, a great recording with some great names. Sung in German.

    I was sitting at home in the stifling London heat yesterday (32-33 Celsius or 90-92 degrees Fahrenheit) and wishing i was nearer the sea and having looked at opera lively thought I would listen to the opera that reminds me most of Falmouth where i study. That opera was obviously this:

    I have always liked Simon Boccanegra though I do not count it among my very favourites (obviously it is still superior to Aida ). It is however emotionally very powerful and the start of the first act really does capture the sea incredibly the music itself shimmers. A really enjoyable listen and revisiting an opera I had not heard in a long while.(I am still listening to Don Carlos fragments over and over as it is quite addictive!!!!!)

    Just finished this one. A nice dose of Sonia Prina. The DVD of this one is great too.


    Just beginning this one:

    Note, I have the D'oro Khovanshchina, but like this cover better. Sound on D'oro is pretty decent.

    I'm listening to a couple by Kathleen Battle. I don't like what I've heard about her attitude, but I sure am enjoying her voice!


    Mozart Arias


    French opera arias.

    I listened to all my Khovanshchina sets since last night (Leskovich, Gergiev, and Tchakarov). Then I came back to Leskovich and it is really wonderful. This is it. This is my favorite. Look at the cast (Back cover details here). Cosotto and Souliotis are wonderful!

    Boris Godunov from this set. It is a two disk set with cuts that has music from the 1862 parts plus some of the Polish scene (where Cossotto sings), but not the Kromy Forest scene. Sound clips here.
