    me thinks this had many, many people stumped all over the world

    though faced with such dilema, some may have pathetically passed out

    but to awake to such a beautiful sight

    Pergolesi always strikes me like a mid-range rosé from Hawkes Bay: perfectly pleasant while it lasts, and not in the leat bit memorable. For instance, I can't think how many times I've heard La Serva Padrona, and every time I don't recognise a single aria.



    Handel on the other hand seems more distinctive, even in a second tier work like this.

    Magdalena Kozená and Susan Gritton, one of those great combinations that really work well and set to beautiful music. I've listened to it many times this year. Kozená has a number of the songs on her solo albums.

    The Fricsay Don Giovanni is one of my favorites, and I have the other recording of Die Zauberflöte (Haitink) with Edita Gruberova's Queen of the Night (as well as Fricsay's version with Haefliger as Tamino).

    Sophie: Helen Donath
    Baron Ochs: Manfred Junwirth
    Singer: Luciano Pavarotti

    Recorded: November, 1968 (Vienna)

    I like this recording much better than the Haitink, which seems to be missing that necessary spark of liveliness.

    Playing now:

    That sound from Decca is so wonderful and Crespin is glorious.

    I was thinking, "what does he mean? Where is the hidden humor here? It's Amfortas, after all." So I though and thought about it... and concluded that this time, maybe you just meant "I was going to say the same!"

    Atypical of you, buddy! You are losing your touch!
