broadcast alert – kasarova

the joy of paper editing

link via smorgy:
What: Berlioz’ La damnation de Faust
When: today, sunday 04-Sep-2011, 20 hr (CET i believe…)

naturally i’d love to catch this. It remains one of the few operas I’m on a mission to catch live one day… esp. when it was the first complete opera i listened to and fell in love with. Anyhow, as it turns out, paper editing is getting there, 95% done i’d say. only that last 5% has been quite head-scratching, such that my bed time is… now… which means alarm is set, the capturing device is tested, and i might just wake up barely to turn everything on before passing out again…

so i did manage to miss everything.  if anyone manage to capture it, please please let me know :-). would really love to listen…

    Oh good, tuning in to hear Faust. Guess I still have time to goof off a bit before Marguerite shows up. 😀

    I’m here too but the iPod doesn’t allow me to listen and write at the same time!

    Autrefois un roi de Thulé….

    Wow, they cut straight to the lament with no break. Cool. Her voice’s sounding amazing… she’s using her Helene voice.

  5. Smorg says:

    Gotta run off now. Like the concert much. 🙂 Frau K sounds remarkably young. Some trouble up high, though she proves quite quick on her feet. Some really nice saves there. I can’t believe she still has that Helene voice 14 years later! Have a great weekend, lasses. 🙂

    hic, missed the whole thing, alarm failed to make a sound! argh!!

    I enjoyed it too – excellent orchestra and chorus but my connection was a bit dodgey so didn’t catch everything. I actually like the way you can hear Frau K breathe in. It sort of adds to the immediacy (spelling?)
    Hang on Smorgy- I thought the weekend was over! or do you guys get extra?
    Hope you managed to capture, Dr. T. (notice the importance of punctuation in that last sentence 😉 )

      no, i missed everything 😦 😦 😦 woahh, and i really wanted to at least capture it 😦
      glad to hear she sang well

      I like that (hearing her breathing), too, Eyes. She does it enough to sound very live, but not enough to put off. 😀 We are having our Labor Day weekend now (Monday is an official holiday), so we can stay up late tonight. Yahoo!

      Hey An! Sorry you missed it. A very good performance, I think. I like the tenor, too, and the pace was nice and quick. I had a zoo date in the early afternoon, though, so didn’t stick around to the end. Hopefully they’ll rebroadcast this again. 🙂 Hope you’re having fun with the paper, too!

  8. Eyesometric says:

    Oh no. Did you finish the paper, though?

    • thả diều says:

      ah, hi Eyes, no, am now up to edit paper again. we have a holiday tomorrow. i’m still pissed this (&#$# phone and its failed alarm. problem w/ fancy electronics these days is they fail to function on the most basic level like making a good connection/call/alarm, grrrr
      meanwhile, in search for re-broadcast of marguerite, just *found* a live recording w/ frau K’s angelina, this one i believe :-).
