    What is this, Kaufmann central?
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    Why not? We don't have many tenors worth talking about. Now if this were 1915...

    No, the DG album has a different orchestra and conductor. The cast is different as well other than Netrebko and Markov.

    Excellent website. I particularly enjoyed this part:

    The force majeur recording is of Siegmund von Jonas Kaufmann. He gives the game not only abundance of euphony, but she also sings with the greatest expressive power; Moreover, it provides for the "Wälse» -Call or in the ecstatic moments of the duet (for example in "To flourish because, Wälsungenblut") for real thrill. Above all, he convinced by a vocal and verbal act, which can be seen every gesture of the figure in a sound mirror. His voice is reminiscent - especially in the dark coloring of the lower octave - increasingly Jon Vickers. Remarkable how supple succeed dynamic transitions from the Piano Forte, which hardly ever the impression arises that he. With two voices, either modal or capitate, sings Impressive is especially the continuity of his singing, the rounding of the tone even in moments of dramatic intensification.

    I wonder whether he will sing Carmen with his modal voice or his capitate one?

    P.S. Love the leopard suit. Where can I get one?

    Yeah, another direct word-for-word translation from some other language. You could check with the Salzburg Festival to see if they have any leftover leopard suits from some of their other productions.

    I've scheduled my dusting and vacuuming for Carmen today. Nature abhors a vacuum, and so do I. Perhaps a spoonful of sugar will help the medicine go down. But of faux-Spanish camp and housecleaning, which is the sugar and which is the medicine?

    I must hope for Kaufmann-medicine. No Garanca-tea of it, alas.

    A quick googling indicates that Kaufmann is still down with the flu and that Yonghoon Lee will sing Jose today.

    Elina Garanca will be Carmen, Ailyn Perez will be Micaela and Gabor Bretz will be Escamillo.
