    Where can I get all of Gobbi's recordings?

    This recording reminded me what a great conductor Karajan was in the 50s.

    Got Amazon and search "music" section under Gobbi, start buying used!

    You will notice many of his 1950s recordings will be with Callas......

    Listening to these in one playlist and in this order. I really struggled at first, especially with Curlew River, but I'm getting there. Will get the Marriner Curlew River when I can find a reasonable Market Seller.

    Handel Italian Opera today, I much prefer these Italian operas to the later English oratorios by Handel, Alan Curtis very dependable conductor with this style music......

    Mieczyslaw Weinberg (1919-1996), The Passenger (1968)

    The booklet contains a letter (in full) by Shostakovich from 1974 praising his friend's opera, The Passenger. Maybe I don't understand the opera that well as I didn't find it particularly thrilling.

    La Traviata with Jonas Kaufmann, Christine Schäfer and Jose van Dam on Youtube. Beautifully sung and acted but an idiotic and distracting production. At first I was wondering why it was set in a dry-cleaners. Why make Kaufmann try and sing while on his back on a trolley repairing a lawnmower in act 2? And what's with the guests doing some kind of zombie twitching during the brindisi?



    This, also on YouTube. Cura sounded bad in act I but was good after. His "e lucevan" was full of despair.

    This is my 3rd R&J on CD and 4th including Salzburg DVD. All are at least good, but none can touch the Corelli/Freni for me, particularly because of Corelli.
