A voice from the previous « parterre field

I’ve been so moved by the feedback responding to final week’s information that I used to be winding down Trove Thursday after seven years. I’m happy to know that these many episodes have been embraced and appreciated.

After a number of grueling negotiating classes, La Cieca and I’ve agreed that I’ll proceed to periodically share stay opera recordings right here. Posts, below a brand new identify TBA, will seem maybe twice a month starting in mid-October.

Within the meantime, La C has requested me to remind readers on occasion of some previous TT highlights:

Idomeneo by Mozart from 2003 carried out by Christoph von Dohnanyi with Jonas Kaufmann, Luba Orgonasova, Malin Hartelius, and Liliana Nikiteanu.

A completely full stay recording of Stephen Sondheim’s dazzling Follies with its authentic Broadway forged.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sadko that includes an all-star Bolshoi forged together with Vladimir Atlantov, Tamara Milashkina, Elena Obraztsova, Zurab Sotkilava and Yuri Mazurok.

Essential American Early Music exponents conductor Alan Curtis and countertenors Derek Lee Ragin and Jeffrey Gall carry out Antonio Cesti’s uncommon and very good Il Tito from 1665.

Ursula Schröder-Feinen, my favourite Mycenaean princess, in a 1973 Elektra broadcast squaring off towards Astrid Varnay whereas awaiting José van Dam’s return.

Lise Davidsen’s earliest encounter with Wagner as Isabella in Das Liebesverbot.

A number of years in the past, I put collectively an inventory of all of the works on Trove Thursday. Alphabetical by composer, a last replace of this archive has been accomplished and will stay out there indefinitely as a useful resource.

My nice thanks for everybody’s continued help.
