kasarova on vivalavoce

update 16-Dec-2010:
i couldn’t find the aria in french on youtube (for very obvious reason after i attempted to upload the aria), so here’s the 3rd attempt. it’s an absolutely great recording all around and worth buying. click on CC to see the subtitles which i managed to put in. unfortunately the video is blocked in germany.

the text is quite different than the italian version (with subtitles) (again thanks Smorgy).
today 13-Dec-2010, at 5pm PST, 8pm EST, 1am(+1) GMT, 2am(+1) CET

vivalavoce — nov 2010 highlights

I bought 3 cd-sets following listening to broadcasts from vivalavoce already.  The first set arrived today, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte with Rene Jacobs, and created a sensation in the lab.  Apparently everyone wants to listen and copy/buy it. So, onto more wonderful music from that great channel.  Remeber to tune in at 8PM EST, 5PM PST. If you’re in Europe, you can also tune in at 3AM EST to listen to the re-broadcasts from last month. hightlights for Nov include:

November 7
Vincenzo Bellini: I Capuletti e i Montecchi

Agnes Baltsa (mezzo-soprano) [Romeo] | Edita Gruberova [Giulietta] | Gwynne Howell [Capellio] | Dano Raffanti [Tebaldo] | John Tomlinson [Lorenzo] | Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden | Riccardo Muti (conductor)
