    Oh yes. Love me that Gerald Finley! Agree about the Walter, he's the weak link.

    my love affair with the library's opera collection continues. Currently rocking the hell out of this recording:

    I've listened to it for 4-5 times already.

    I agree, that staging is wonderful (I've only seen what is available on YouTube for now). Can't wait to get to see all of it.

    Yesterday I listened to:

    51xWQv-vbtL._SY300_.jpg

    I like this very much, Julia Lezhneva has an incredibly clear sound and does some breathtaking coloratura.

    And after that

    71VfV9elHfL._SL1200_.jpg

    Two of my favourite Schubert works. I recently rediscovered Matthias Goerne singing Schubert.

    Messiaen: Saint François d'Assise



    José van Dam
    Dawn Upshaw

    Hallé Orchestra

    Kent Nagano

    Deutsche Grammophon CD (Box set)

    Great singers and great orchestra but boring music! I bet even on stage it would be just like you're watching a Tarkovsky or a Bergman movie...
