    (some titles must be in a pristine condition. Strong mint. The reason is their price. How you can give 800 US for something has hairlines or splits on the cover, etc.? This can make a waiting without end. To make a perfect series of 8 CDs, I'm waiting 5 years and counting…)


    By the way: Opera, German composer, Deutsche Grammophon, black hard cover (cd or LP I'm not sure) with a scene from the opera which has as a subject something evil or demonic. I have seen once this title also in our community. I bookmarked it many years ago in an internet site which is recently dropped and now I'm clueless about the title.

    Tonight I don't have rarities or collectibles, but one of the most beloved CDs I owe. The Homage to Renee Fleming. I have listened this one hundreds of times, but every time is like the first one. Thrilling arias, mesmerizing performance from the words leading lyric soprano. A CD I can not live without it and it costs only few cents. Music paradox...

    HIP? No. Hip? Trying.

    But a good performance, nonetheless.

    Delius: Double, Violin and Cello Concertos. Tasmin Little, Paul Watkins Davis/BBC. Sumptuous music performed lovingly in great sound. The Double Concerto is nice but the Violin and Cello Concertos steal the show.
