    This weekend I listened to:

    Selections from


    Vivaldi-Tito Manlio


    Rameau-La Temple De La Gloire

    Sometimes I struggle to get through a complete Baroque opera in one go, but Vivaldi has such a unique sound to me in his vocal music, and I love the delicate and elegant, effervescent sound of French Baroque. I listened to about an hour of highlights from each of these albums

    Verdi: Songs.

    Not technically opera, but I felt close enough to include since it's part of my Verdi project
    This is a beautiful album!!

    Now that I am back home, I am gamely trying to get back on schedule with my walking. Not easy for me, as anything outdoor-sy really has to be done early (not my strong suit..) as it tends to become blast furnace hot before noon. At least it feels that way with humidity hovering around 80%.

    So, today, I listened to an old favorite, which never disappoints - even if Elena Suliotis was past her peak singing years at this point. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau really rises to the occasion without sounding bored and we have a very early, pre-cynical Luciano Pavarotti singing Macduff:

    Verdi-Otello in English.


    This recording is decidedly inferior to the other two Shakespeare Verdi operas-in-english. Whereas I'm considering purchasing the Macbeth in English to supplement my Italian recording since I enjoyed it so much, I know I won't be listening to this one again. But I don't have time right now to sit down with a libretto so this is a decent way of getting the series of events in my mind. I will be listening to another Otello recording within the next week, likely Karajan recording with Tebaldi and Del Monaco, which I've owned for a year but has languished on my unlistened-to-pile

    Geez is it hot! Still, I made it out for a walk this morning. I'm off the hook tomorrow as I have jury duty.

    It's not easy to summon energy when the weather in unkind so well done you for going out. Hope the case is neither distressing nor too long and you can get back to your routine soon.

    My shopping list was a short one today so this was all I needed. I'm going to see a new production in September so I thought I'd refresh the memory.
