    Borrowed an idea from Florestan . . .



    Wonderful recording all around.

    This may be the fastest tempo Fidelio I have listened to:

    The other recording with Jan Peerce as Florestan -- led by Knappertsbusch -- may well be the slowest!

    Ha! Yes it is. I have it but did not connect they have the same singer. I'll stick with Toscanini over Kna. The Toscanini is not bad sound for the date of the performance, which I think is 1944.

    Toscanini's Fidelio is another recording I've been thinking of purchasing -- I listened to Rose Bampton on YouTube and really liked her voice. Snail-paced though it is, the Knappertsbusch recording has Sena Jurinac, who is one of the best Leonores I've heard.

    Really like this early Verdi opera. The cast in this live recording, which also includes Angeles Gulin as Gulnara, from the Frankfurt Opera is top-notch . . . though, yes, I really would have preferred Carreras in place of Lamberti as Corrado.

    I don't know that one. I probably ought to look it up sometime.

    Another early Verdi opera I hadn't listened to in quite some time. The cast is great, though I don't find the music as appealing as that in Il Corsaro.

    To celebrate the Fourth of July, an opera dealing with the Swiss struggle for independence. The final chorus, "Tout change et grandit en ces lieux... Liberté, redescends des cieux," has one of the most beautiful and moving tributes to freedom I've heard.

    I have a DVD (think with Florez) that I bought 4 years ago but no CD. Maybe I should watch it someday.

    I think the opera's sheer length (that CD recording includes four discs) discourages many houses/companies from staging it. The role of Arnold is also enormously difficult, though Spyres is up to the challenge.
