  1. Identifying Classical Music

  3. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I have this one (and listened to it 12 times over the weekend :)): Which is very good (Clips from the remaster edition), but I am not a big fan of either Pavarotti (but I do like his eight high Cs in La Fille du Regiment), and Freni's voice seems to heavy or dark to me. I would prefer a...
  4. Opera
    I always find it depressing when I see people in the internet or in everyday life who think that the above three are the only tenors in existance and compare them by their own parameters as if they knew what they are talking about. It gets tragicomical when some people say Paul Potts is better...

    Obviously in Turandot, this blends straight into the next number, but when heard by itself, even when it's taken from a complete recording, such as the Pavarotti / Sutherland, it's got a full ending. Did this get recorded separately and mixed in later?

    I have 3 CDs of La Sonnambula and one DVD with the following Aminas: Luba Orgonasova Mariella Devia Maria Callas (1957 Live) Eva Mei on DVD (wish this were on a CD also) So I am looking at the Sutherland Pavarotti La Sonnambula and like it a lot, but people are saying Sutherland sings better...
  8. Opera
    Hey all, I've been wondering about a certain thing Pavarotti seemed to apply to certain vowels (mainly the E, I believe). I watched a video some time ago, but forgot which, where he said he was "squeaking" the note on those certain vowels. I, for one, don't know what this means or how it's...
  9. Opera
    I'm showing La Boheme this semester during my college music history class (non-Music majors). I'm doing some research on the best DVD performances of La Boheme, but I can't find much written by musicians. I've heard the Pavarotti/Freni San Fransisco recording is one of the best. Does anyone have...
