radio alert: agrippina!

Edit: the capturing machine is on. it’s now starting.
In case you don’t know the opera well (like me), here’s libretto. THat must be Nerone currently singing… thought i heard also a CT in there at beginning…
So, Purity and I apparently have a nice patch going on on fb, but we agreed the mic sounds like someone’s phone recording… could have been better…
– wow, the sound is horrible.. quite unacceptable. let me see if i can find a better link w/ higher quality. horrible…
– ack. i quite annoyed. bad sound quality giving this hooting/ringing effect… must be the poor quality streaming… this reminded me of the occasion we all listened to Der R broadcasted also from Spain w/ DiDonato and sound was this quality and everyone sounded like screeching…
– oof, i promptly lost connection.. must be a sign. time to call it a day and go for walk enjoying the sun. in summary, the sound recording resulted in me not recognizing Sarah Connolly’s voice, as well as orchestra sounding like coming out of a blending machine next door… the only voice seems to come out fine is David Daniel’s. while i at it, not a huge fan of De Niese’s singing…
