  1. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Oh, I see. It’s the audio, not the whole thing. Phew, I was just about to get a little too excited.

      that explains the first comment up there ;-), for a sec I thought you were spamming :-D. well I have to tell you this will be my first opportunity to hear a whole recording with ASvO (!) and am quite looking forward to it. But which one are you referring to as the “whole” thing? there was a DVD of it as well?

  3. …I meant in my usual inarticulate way, not both vid and aud, but only audio. Now that you ask, no of course not, there isn’t a video of ASvO’s Idamante or Cherubino unfortunately.

    Ok, chillax, DtO.
