    It could work. Give it a go and let me know how it works out.

    It could be fun for the forum if you would report immediately following the trial.

    I don't know. I have not heard any of his works yet but this one probably does sound the most interesting.

    I understand it was a great success at the time, performed 127 times at the Opéra and Berlioz was a fan of this work.

    It seems young Padawan Salieri learned well from master Gluck...

    No, mezzo-forte (? if this is a correct term) with the rich golden sound of Del Monaco, I like it very much.

    I forgot to say in the previous post that of course Renata Tebaldi's performance is stunning.

    This morning I am in Vienna, 20 November 1976. After a beautiful walk around the city... (okay my imagination really needs a health check)

    Yes so in my imagination, I also went to have a coffee and chocolate cake in an very old Vienna coffee house, and the coffee was served in Augarten coffee cups.

    I, on the other hand, am in the country of my youth:



    Personally not my favourite version for idiosyncratic reasons. Don't like either the timbre of either Montserrat Caballé (too chickeny) or of Mady Mesplé (too French canary), although intellectually I know they are both singing superlatively well. I think it would appeal to many others. And it is a great opera.
