    JK has a new Lied album, “Selige Stunde” (Blissful Hour), due to be released on 4 September.
    https://operawire.com/jonas-kaufmann...-lieder-album/

    I noticed among the track listings the German folksong “Ännchen von Tharau,” a lovely, touching piece I first heard sung by Fritz Wunderlich. Here it is with English translation:



    Definitely want to listen to Kaufmann’s rendition (as well as the Beethoven Lieder he’s recorded on this disc).

    According to a small article in the August issue of Opernwelt, there will be a new studio recording of Fidelio released on the Pentatone label at some point in the future – probably in December, to coincide with the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. Marek Janowski leads the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra and a cast that includes Lise Davidsen (Leonore), Christian Elsner (Florestan), Johannes Martin Kränzle (Pizarro), Georg Zeppenfeld (Rocco), Christina Landshamer (Marzelline), Cornel Frey (Jaquino), and Günther Groissböck (Don Fernando).

    Recording sessions took place back in June in the grand hall of Dresden’s Kulturpalast (Culture Palace) with COVID-19 safety precautions in place – which I gather primarily involved social distancing. Neither Janowski nor the string player visible in the accompanying photo is wearing a face mask. (Obviously, wind instrument players can’t wear masks.) I hope the result will have been worth the risk.

    In any case, Davidsen’s fans will no doubt be pleased.

    Deutsche Grammophon has recently released a recording of a concert this past summer at the Wagner villa, Wahnfried, in Bayeuth, with Christian Thielemann conducting musicians from the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra and soprano soloist Camilla Nylund. (I’m assuming the size of the orchestra was reduced in conformance with COVID-19 safety protocols.) The program includes the Wesendonck Lieder and the Siegfried Idyll.
    https://www.deutschegrammophon.com/e...uth-2020-12124

    There is also a new album from soprano Sabine Devieilhe and pianist Alexandre Tharaud, “Chanson d’amour,” on the Erato label with songs by Fauré, Poulenc, Ravel, and Debussy. It’s available in CD, LP, and digital formats.

    A little information on one new and one upcoming release of operatic rarities from the October issue of Das Opernglas:

    - Alessandro Melani: L’Empio Punito
    Conductor/orchestra: Alessandro Quarta, Reale Festival Baroque Ensemble
    Director: Cesare Scarton
    Cast: Alessandro Ravasio, Michela Guarrera, Carlotta Colombo, Sabrina Cortese, Mauro Borgioni, Giacomo Nanni, Alessio Tosi, Riccardo Pisani, Luca Cervoni, Maria Elena Pepi, Guglielmo Buonsanti
    Dynamic 37871 (1 DVD)
    Based on the Spanish play El burlador de Sevilla o convidado de piedra (The seducer of Seville or the stone guest), Melani’s work, which premiered in Rome in 1669, was the first operatic setting of the Don Juan legend.

    - Ferdinando Paer: Leonora
    When this opera, based on the same source material as Fidelio, was performed in concert format at the recent Innsbruck Festival of Early Music, the reviewer noticed the presence of microphones as well as the microports worn by the soloists, suggesting a CD recording will be forthcoming. Innsbruck used Christian Seidenberg’s new critical edition of Paer’s score, and the performance received a favorable evaluation from the reviewer.
    Alessandro De Marchi conducted the Innsbruck Festival Orchestra, with cast members Eleonora Bellocci (Leonora), Paolo Fanale (Florestano), Carlo Allemano (Pizzarro), Renato Girolami (Rocco), Marie Lys (Marcellina), Luigi De Donato (Giacchino), and Kresimir Spicer (Don Fernando).

    Marina Rebeka starred in one of the best La Traviata DVDs I have ever watched. And it was semi staged production too. IMO she did a wonderful job of portraying Violetta. Whole production is wonderful. Read about it here.

    Well this is really awesome. Two new releases, both Leonore:


    Beethoven: Leonore (1805 version)
    Due for release on 8th Jan 2021


    This next one MAuer introduced us to back in August, when it was posted on You Tube, now to be released on DVD. MAuer said,
    "As I soon figured out, this is the 1806 version of Fidelio, which more closely resembles the 1805 Urfassung than the 1814 final version. All of the action takes place on a single multipurpose set featuring a massive structure of "interwoven," sweeping stairways. Costumes are modern; even Marzelline is wearing trousers here. Still, it's a fine cast and Waltz respects both the characters and the story."

    Due for release on 8th Jan 2021

    Now this is the way to begin a new year!

    That production from Opera Lafayette reuses the same company's staging from performances of Gaveaux's Léonore, and even has the same Florestan (Jean-Michel Richer) and Marceline/Marzelline (Pascale Beaudin).

    I am about to lose my mind. I saw Joyce perform this live a couple years ago at Hill Auditorium and wished so much for a recording with Joyce. Now I have to wait several months! Due out in April:
