starting October…

so, just slept for 10 hrs!! for the first time in a long while, i literally fell asleep at the keyboard while poor colleague on other side of continent uploading files… before taking 24hr flight to other side of Atlantic… and leaving rest of us on east coast with quite few green things in throat…

But it was done! Had first game of football yesterday too, now body aching and eyes swollen from too much sleep. only quibble about long sleep was the constant dreaming of another proposal deadline in 1 wk + back on ship packing frantically…

So, here’s to resuming “normal” life

I wanted to listen to many of her works, but accidentally come across this. By the quality of the sound, you know there’s a full recording somewhere!!! and it must have been a full performance! coz u don’t gather full orchestra + full chorus and ACA wouldn’t sing the entire tomb scene for just that, would she? hunting time begins…

Also, in case you happen to be in the Boston vicinity this coming Wednesday Oct 10, come to the NEC for a niiiice performance of GLuck’s Orfeo ed Euridice, this time with a mezzo-Orpheus, yay! and FREE too. Am quite looking forward, nothing nicer than Jordan Hall with choose-your-own-seats to start td’s music season!

News elsewhere, Vivica Genaux made her debut as Carmen in France, anyone has a chance to find out how it went (Yvette? 🙂 ). VK is singing Romeo soon… H&H society is making their season debut w/ Bach Magnificat, but I’ve been sitting on decision to go, again because it’s in gigantic symphony hall… and waaay forward to Dec, Dec 13 to be exact, Andreas Scholl is giving a free master-class at Jordan Hall at NEC! Surely he’s here for some other performance as well? Would love to find out what that is…

edit: more pieces found on YT, still hunting for whole performance, it’s :
Romeo: Anna Caterina Antonacci – Giulietta: Olga Peretyatko – Direttore: Evelino Pidò – Paris, live TCE 11.11.2011, with review. if you find, plllease send my way 🙂

    Carmen seems to be starting the Season all over France! Here is a link about the one you are looking for, the Rouen one which will be sung at versailles in october I hope you can open the link. I will try to find more…. Best wishes to you ! I am glad you had a good rest!

    I’ve tried to find your missing video/link but no luck, sorry! Hope you enjoy your Orfeo tomorrow and perhaps a *little* sleep before then!

      which link? the one Yvette sent? I realized she has the letter “I” in the next sentence blended in witht he link, if you remove that it might work. i pasted once din’dt work, then remove letter I at the end and landed in carmen with leather 🙂

      • Eyesometric says:

        No, I meant the whole performance with ACA in Paris that you wanted! I’ve already explored the leather Carmen 😉

          😉 . i drifted away from whole performance… but will keep that in back of mind. her Vitellia is still on my list as well

    I heart Jordan Hall. And Monteverdi’s Orfeo is there the following month. All that and Andreas Scholl and Hesperion XXI — NEC’s got it going on this season.

    Scholl is touring his latest recital program, but it looks like there are only three US dates and, weirdly, Boston isn’t one of them. The last date is NYC on 12/8, so what he’s doing between then and the NEC master class is a mystery.
