    Thinking about this one. I'm getting it from Netflix first, just to be sure.

    I haven't heard any alternate Monteverdi versions since I got my Hanoncourt L'IdP many years ago. I've become intrigued by the following offerings, so I ordered them today.

    Let us know what you think.

    Inspired by Yashin, I hope something involving Philip Langridge (1939 - 2010). He went far too early.

    I didn't even know it existed. But it's on its way to me now!

    I will. I've been looking for a complete Ulisse for years and for some reason had no luck. I must have blinked when the Jacobs came out all those years ago.

    Had to get it. Just couldn't resist Vickers, Hotter and Knappy together.
    Knappys last performance at Bayreuth too,
    and the classy Orfeo presentation.
    I'm so weak.

    His Parsifal is excellent.

    Hopefully something of him singing Britten...either Vere or Grimes. I particularly like his Vere...very upper class commander, can imagine him stood there with his hat on surveying the waters and enjoying a glass of wine with the officers. I must dig out his Death in Venice

    This one:

    I have not had a good listen yet, but I think with Birgit Nilsson and Gottlob Frick you can't go wrong.
    ... yet for us will still remain the holy German art... (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg)

    God gave all men all earth to love,
    But since our hearts are small,
    Ordained for each one spot should prove
    Beloved over all.

    Apologies for the late response. I can recommend this:



    This is on my wish list but I haven't ordered it yet: Andrzej Dobber - arias
