music to start the weekend

this has been at the corner of my eyes for “years”, but somehow i have completely overlooked… her sculpting of the orchestra, *wow* , her superlative phrasing, double *wow*! this alone has my head FILLED with images of Alcina slowly collapsing onto the floor (Wien-induced)..

I wish she would consider singing this role! like transposing the whole music down, why not! and may be we can have a… humm, do we want to swap out our mezzos? no! OK, we stay with a mezzo-Ruggiero, a Contralto Alcina, a soprano Morgana, and another contralto Brandamante, ❤

(there's still that role Polinesso that we also would like to see her in..)

music to start saturday

music for late night thursday

(i think we had an idea once, that she’d conduct her own Ariodante show with her orchestra, and sing Polinesso at the same time! She can tour it, with all our fav Ariodantes! and on occasions she can also swap out with Prina for Polinesso! jeah!)

(and we also have candidates for Ginevra and Dalinda!)

Nathalie Stutzmann video stream alert

yaaaaaaay, Nathalie Stutzmann conducted Händel Messiah last night (16/Dec/2017) in Götenborg (with K.Hammarström singing the mezzo part) and it was broadcast live in cinema across entire Sweden! (they really do it right with the broadcast, her Messiah is really something, now i can’t unhear it (the dynamics, am still so sad there was no radio broadcast of it back in 2014 in Paris or in DC in 2015), especially when now listening to other conductors… In any case it is now available for ONE WEEK beginning today here!

relatedly, she also conducted the same piece 2 weeks ago in Oslo, and there will also be a radio broadcast of that on 23/Dec/2017 at 1700GMT here.
