more broadcasts…

first up, music for the evening:

that was the tune that immediately hooked me to “opera” path… actually the more i listen, the more i’m amazed with her tone.

but sidetrack, i missed a TON of broadcasts today, GMT time and evening EST just don’t mix, but here’s a nice one happening in 5min:

that’s quite a line up: Mijanovic, Beaumont, Basso, Kalna, Il Complesso, Alan Curtis… will try my capturing machine as well.

more soon, just putting up broadcast alert, happening in 2 min… here’s link to stream. WOW, NIIIIICE orchestra!!

Edit:
.why does it sound so familiar the music at the beginning? wonder if i’ve listened to this before or whether it’s recycled music… though now that i think about it, might be one of those things Biondi and his orchestra was playing when i saw them in LA… (??)
.and the who-is-who (Kalna singing a male role! and Mijanovic a female one)
Motezuma..Emperor of Mexico..bass-baritone
Mitrena…his wife………..contralto
Teutile…his daughter…….soprano
Fernando..General of the Spanish armies..soprano castrato
Ramiro….his younger brother…………mezzo-soprano en travesti
Asprano…General of the Mexicas………soprano castrato

ok, 2hrs in, i give up. it’s actually very nice music, but… this “sameness” is invading… off searching for something with a bit more dynamics…

Edit2:
as mentioned, lots of broadcasts, i love listening to live concerts. anyhow, this edit is more about EVERYTHING i missed, including the Tchaikovsky’s piano concerto from Finland with no archive.. so here’s in place, picking up at this lovely moment:
