    Best to stick to the Naive edition for Vivaldi - this was not very good.

    Vivaldi: L'Olimpiade RV725
    Elisabeth Magnus-Harnoncourt, Lucia Meeuwsen, Andrew Schultze, Mieke Van der Sluis, Aris Christofellis, Gťrard Lesne
    Clemencic Consort, Renť Clemencic

    Had to listen to some excellent Baroque singing to counter the previous CD. But it comes to an abrupt halt halfway though which is kind of frustrating (only two acts of this first version survived)


    Vivaldi: Orlando Furioso, RV728

    Riccardo Novaro (Orlando), Romina Basso (Alcina), GaŽlle Arquez (Bradamante), Roberta Mameli (Astolfo), Delphine Galou (Medoro), David DQ Lee (Ruggiero) & Teodora Gheorghiu (Angelica)

    Have either of you heard the new Naive Vivaldi release yet? Dorilla in Tempe. I've not heard it yet, but I'm going to listen this month while I have Amazon Unlimited Music.

    Gounod: Faust
    Chandos Opera in English

    I'm signed up for a month of Amazon Music Unlimited. Every time I use this, I try to listen to 3 or 4 from the Chandos Opera in English series. If the English is understandable, then it's a good way for me to learn a few more operas quickly. Certainly they'd never be a #1 version, but it's been a good experience for me

    Boccherini: La Clementina
    Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana, Radio Svizzera Italiana Chorus; Angelo Ephrikian
    Fernando Corena (bass), Ugo Benelli (tenor), Maria Grazia Ferracini (soprano), Elena Rizzieri (soprano), Karla Schean (mezzo-soprano), Luciana Ticinelli (alto)

    Calls itself a zarzuela but is definitely closer to baroque opera than more recent incarnations- and is sung in Italian. It's a fairly old recording of this melodious opera; not keen on the female voices but this re-ignited my liking for Ugo Benelli (if you like JDF you will like him)

    I've talked about how much I love this recording before, but have to say that (as of today, anyway) it has to be in my top five favorite recordings. Ever.

    What else would you expect from Marilyn Horne and Samuel Ramey - in roles that sound like Rossini must have anticipated their singing careers.

    Marilyn and Sam singing together makes me happy!

    Prokofiev: Fiery Angel

    I like Prokofiev but I must admit, this is difficult listening for me. this one may require watching at some point to really get my head around it

    As far as I can tell, this is complete and I love it! There were cuts in the copy I bought a few months ago.

    I want to get to know it properly before I see it in June.

    Just read the synopsis on Wikipedia. Really weird, but great material for an opera. Wonder how it would play out on DVD? I may have to investigate this one further.

    It is still really cold here on the U.S. east coast (with the wind, it is 3F/-16C at the moment), so am holed up for yet another day trying to keep myself amused.

    Since I love the L'Italiana in Algeri so much, I decided on another, even more famous, Rossini comedy:

    I think Roberta Peters, a native New Yorker and long time Met stalwart, is a somewhat underappreciated coloratura soprano whose career at the Met was at its peak in the 1950 - 1970 period, is a delightful Rosina!

    I've been watching the weather reports for over your way and it looks absolutely dreadful and dangerous to go out.
