Saturday's Live Offerings

The Met has already started its broadcast of Die Walkure - and so far I am not much impressed. Clifton Forbis, as Siegmund, sounds older than Domingo! But, enough about that. Also now underway from other places one can hear:

  • Catalunya Musica - a live recital with Felicity Lott: Fallen Women and Virtuous Wives, featuring the music of Kurt Weill, Franz Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Hugo Wolf, Richard Strauss, Herbert Hughes, William Walton, Arthur Bliss, Benjamin Britten, Gabriel Fauré, Henri Duparc and others. Grahame Johnson accompanies.
  • Deutschlandradio Kultur - From Leipzig, a November 2007 performance of Wagner's Rienzi, with Vinke, Marika Schönberg, Pavel Kudinov, Elena Zhidkova, Jürgen Kurth, Christopher Robertson, Martin Petzold, Thomas Oertel-Gormanns, and Gabriela Scherer, conducted by Axel Kober.

I will post shortly on items starting at 1:30 or later EST.

Happy listening...
