    I actually meant it more as my reaction to your spending madness. But it works either way.

    I suppose you are a Verdi fan
    I just finished listening to the first 2 acts of this one (it arrived today) and it is an absolutely promising start. Not a weak link in the cast (Margison's Don Carlo is a revelation to me) and the conducting is so subtle.
    The Solti has always been my favorite, but I have a problem with Fischer-Dieskau's Rodrigo, to me he is not a Verdi singer and totally miscast.

    Shall do, when I get around to listen to it.

    I haven't yet bought Deidamia on Blu-ray but I will eventually. If you view it, then let us know too!

    The cd I found at eclassical.com, called "Pavane". It's the record of works of Debussy, Dubugnon, Faure and Ravel, performed by Maxim Rysanov. The music is astonishing! I love it!

    I'm very much a Handel beginner & not sure if this is a recommended version but I usually like Gardiner so I'm really looking forward this coming.



    This is Aksel's fault. I'd started to get over my Requiem obsession then he started Tweeting about his performing in it so I had to get another version.
