music for wednesday

Edit:
ooof, in case we are curious about the countess after the above clip, we can see her more here. Not quite Malena Ernman’s cartwheel flip and push-up but .. stretch is important!

      i also like cherubino a lot! her usage of Italian to her advantage

      • Agathe says:

        Yes, very nice interpretation and cute acting! And the countess directly goes for his hair 🙂

          the huff huff at the beginning and ruffling of hair were also cute! one always worries about over-acting or over-emoting somehow with this character.. but i think she did it just right, along with pulling of the voice into p at certain points.. i particularly like the pause and pull at laaanguir cosi..

    Agree with everything you said (had to re-watch again, what a sacrifice). Also, he is not too timid as some Cherubinos are. I like how he just pretends to be modest in the beginning. Very nice to see it’s still possible to do something unique with this!

      I also don’t like it when they make C overly timid – he’s already been getting it on with Barbarina, is overly familiar with Susanna and has written a song for the Countess (and every woman who wants to listen), so ha to the shy guy image. It’s just one of his tactics towards charming all the women in sight 😉
