    I just finished Rossini's Otello, with Frederica Von Stade singing a gorgeous Willow Song


    And I now I am onto another Verdi recording (I don't go TOO long without listening to Verdi!)


    Aida: Conducted by Karajan, with Bergonzi and Tebaldi as the ill fated lovers

    I didn't know Fidelio and needed to get to know it before I went to see it next year. For once I followed Luiz's advice and watched a DVD/YouTube before I listened to a CD.

    Now that I know the story I find that listening is so much more rewarding... Who knew?

    Anyhoo listened to this on my morning schlep to the shops and I knew what they were singing about.

    It's odd that although Florestan is the object of the story, he doesn't have much to sing. I'm particularly enjoying the beautiful voices of Falk Struckmann (Pizarro), Christof Fischesser (Rocco) and Peter Mattei (Don Fernando).

    Conductor: Helmuth Froschauer
    West German Radio Orchestra, Cologne
    Cast: Franz Hawlata, Regina Klepper, Jonas Kaufmann, Markus Marquardt, Thomas Dewald, Anke Hoffmann

    Just the opera for Halloween! (Despite the cover's graphics, the vampire of the title is a man – Lord Ruthven.)

    Fascinating! What a story.
    Yes, on first impression one thinks the lady on the cover is the vampire.
    Musically quite good too.

    I know Pavarotti isn't the most popular tenor but I do love his voice here and Milnes is superb.

    So I am not the only one who doesn't really care for Pavarotti. But if you want Freni, you often have to take Pavarotti. I got around that in L'amico Fritz by ordering an older set with Freni.

    Yes, I'm another (or Sutherland or CaballÚ for that matter). I know they can all sing superbly, but the tone of their voices grates on me.

    Never mind, they have plenty of devoted fans!

    That's the fascination and the wonderful thing about the arts - it's subjective and one person's opinion is just as valid as any other. It would be so boring if we all liked the same.

    While I don't care for Sutherland (horrible diction!), I really like Pavarotti and CaballÚ.

    With 2 contraltos and 1 mezzo (also two sopranos; no men) this is pure bliss:
