    Luckily I'm in Vienna and there's opera everywhere you look. I accosted two young women and asked if they would take my photo by a poster. They agreed of course but then went into great detail about Wozzeck and Berg and Arnold Schoenberg and Anton Webern. Of course they could have been the only two women in the whole of Vienna who knew about atonal music but somehow I doubt it. They were absolutely lovely and wished me a pleasant evening.

    I cheated with putting up that cover above. I actually own the one with this cover:


    But you should consider the newly released 6-CD set that has all three Gencer queens.

    Of the two, I prefer the Britten. Anyone got a personal favourite?

    I agree. It's always a revelation to hear Britten conduct his own work.

    If you listen to his War Requiem, there is a (unauthorized at the time of taping) recording of him rehearsing the orchestra and choir. He's a real stickler for his vision.
