    So_Fa's HvK ring purchase and other conversations on the forum has brought me back to my most recent ring purchase (aside from the wife's last birthday present)...

    Enjoying this '62 Sawallisch Bayreuth Tannhäuser, though it's a little disconcerting the cover of the original ZYX packaging doesn't list Grace Bumbry, the first black performer at Bayreuth, as Venus.

    I think it could be even more bliss with Vogt instead of Kollo!

    KFV is indeed hard to beat in the role of Paul.

    But, I was thinking as I was walking that this recording must be one of Kollo's best - he had to have been at or close to his peak when he recorded this in 1975. Carol Neblett also is very good (though with a somewhat heavy vibrato) and carries "Marietta's Lied" better than most sopranos I've heard and seen.




    I'm not sure why the folks who posted this clip decided to use views of Salzburg instead of Bruges, but what can you do?

    Spent most of today cooking for the freezer and needed something easy and familiar to listen to. Started off with this to go with the lentil and chunky veg soup:



    then to accompany the chilli bean sauce:

    I neglected to report on yesterday's listening:


    Yet again, I reached into that bottomless box of operas


    Name:  DasNachtlagerinGranada.jpg
Views: 282
Size:  22.2 KB


    This proved to be a very pleasant listen - mid 19th century Romantic, I think, by Conradin Kreutzer - sweet enough to almost rate as an operetta. Very sweetly sung.


    For yesterday's walk, some pleasant time spent with Marilyn Horne:


    Name:  TancrediHorne.jpg

Size:  30.1 KB


    I believe Tancredi might be better known than some of Rossini's other Opera Seria, but I don't like it as well as some others: Semiramide, La Donna del Lago, Zelmira and Matilde di Shabran, among others.


    Then, for today's walk:


    Name:  Ercole.jpg

    I love this opera! After it was finished, I still had a subway ride back home ahead of me, so cued it up for an encore.

    An absolutely wonderful La Sonnambula. The vocals are fantastic.
