    Is there a Netrebko/Villazón version of Manon Lescaut? I think not. What exists is their version of Massenet's Manon. I like it very much. Rolando looks quite ridiculous with his little mustache but...

    Not entirely. A few of them did get done, and they are under the "Exclusive Articles" line of the top left widget (Home page) but we never got past those few. Many of them, though, do have other...

    See this quote: "His method can result in vocal impairment if the singer is not talented enough to understand how to apply it, and certainly is not for everyone. It would be truly absurd for a...
  6. An opportunity to see Vanessa online from Glyndebourne

    This is not to be missed, folks. Samuel Barber's excellent Vanessa production in Glyndebourne will be streamed live by The Telegraph and will then be on demand for a week.

    I loved the Tcherniakov Onegin, maybe my favorite Onegin of them all.

    Very good technique is supposed to account for more effortless singing. Bad technique is the one that increases the strain.

    I find the plot in the four Ring operas to be very interesting, even suspenseful (I remember feeling this way when I watched the cycle for the first time). A lot of it is metaphorical so I relate to...

    Hopefully our new member who is a voice expert will chime in, but in my understanding, when you train your muscles to prevent your larynx from moving up, you can sing with a fuller voice without as...

    15/15, happy that they had a good number of contemporary operas.

    Compression is used to reduce file size and download times. As the Internet infrastructure progresses more and more and bandwidth gets larger and larger, we see more lossless downloads.

    Well, if you said "some" audiophiles I assume that you meant some of them, not all... So, it would seem that we'd be able to find audiophiles who would say the exact opposite.

    Frankly, I attribute...

    The thing is, it's a personality thing. I'm a very pragmatic guy, I like the here-and-now, and I embrace technological advancements. I like science fiction, I like the Internet (which is one of the...

    Amazon Marketplace has plenty of used CDs, and you can order them and get the physical product delivered to your home.

    But it's not exactly the same argument.
    The CD you get from the brick-and-mortar store is exactly the same CD you get from Amazon. So, I'd rather shop for it from the convenience of my living room....

    That's what I've always said; we can't stop evolution.
    We went from wax to gramophones to vinyl to analog tape to CDs to digital and who knows what's next.

    I hear you; your good taste and great knowledge regarding the Baroque and Classical periods are credentials that give weight to your opinion. So, I'm ready to experiment. What do you recommend?

  24. The best La ci darem la mano

    I was in the mood for comparing several clips of La ci darem la mano to select the best.

    I couldn't find one that had both singers doing the best possible job.
