So, that’s a wrap up. the 2nd part seemed to have significantly more energy that first for some reason… first part felt somewhat dragging but 2nd part, you can feel the conductor’s direction a lot more. also, Ms. Borodina, very very very nice voice! and finally i pay attention to captions, the duet seemed to be most exciting actually, between her and Faust. I’ve been quite enjoying it and now seeing what they’re duetting about is even more fun. might end up posted both versions (this, though am worried ’bout copyrights, and VK’s version @ Weimar.)
ps- it seems available for re-play too, nice! may be i can run through 1st part again then…
