    There are different sources of inspiration for the listening of the day. Most will come from this forum but some are more random. This morning I awoke to this music (being played on the rhino campus stereo).

    Bach, J S: St Matthew Passion, BWV244
    Werner Güra (Evangelist), Johannes Weisser (Christus), Sunhae Im, Christina Roterberg (sopranos), Bernarda Fink, Marie-Claude Chappuis (altos), Topi Lehtipuu, Fabio Trümpy (tenors) & Konstantin Wolff, Artuu Kataja (basses)

    It is a very popular piece of music; the Presto Classical site lists ninety-five recordings for sale by this vendor alone. There are many, many excellent recordings available and this is one of them. It is excellent for amongst other reasons, the excellent sound quality and cast.

    Tonight we spent the evening in Red Square with Anna and Dimitri. This is a splendid concert, especially in Blu ray. The overview of Moscow is lovely, and the audience looked just like an audience in the West. Which raises interesting philosophical and political issues.

    But Anna and Dimitri are fabulous.

    I'm in a minimalist mood. I was listening to Glass' Akhnaten last night, now Godar, and next may be Arvo Part. Is Godar considered a part of "Holy/Sacred Minimalism"? This album sure sounds like it.

    One of my favourite recital disc of all time, I have to admit never playing both discs in one session.
    L.P area was easier

    Very clean crisp sound, very sparkly. Pretty voices and very clear diction.

    Very beautiful. A full recording of Orfeo and Paride ed Elena should be done.

    I am going to look further into Sacchini; I have been looking at that Renaud for a while now.

    (and I have got to put the Don Juan CD in to the player)

    I'm glad you liked it. Once of my favourite counter-tenor recitals.

    I more than liked it, thanks for the pointer. Please keep them coming.

    I think it was only about four or five months ago that I posted the comment that I do not listen to solo recitals much because I did not know opera enough to appreciate the music without the full context.

    I change now


    oh c£&p

    there's a helluva lot to add to wish list now

    Sublime, romantic and intelligent expression. Yes, I think this may be my preferred choice (for today at least).

    One of my favourite poems, Der Wegweiser (The signpost).

    The confusion and difficulties of choice; individuality and individualism faced by conformity; with guidance from society/culture/religion we live life but only once.

    What has this got to do with Der Wegweiser?

    Nothing.

    Just me making up my own story as usual.
