Sorely tempting. Mr. Sonata somehow thinks I don't need anymore CDs. Silly man.
Onto the latest Chandos listenings:
I tried Rossini's Italian in Algiers this morning. The performers seemed fine enough, but I could not get into it. And I really enjoy the original Italian, it might be my favorite of Rossini's comedic operas. Here maybe we've found a case where the English doesn't cut it for me! I didn't bother listening to the whole thing.
On the other hand:
This one was very good. Florestan is a fan of this one and I agree with him. The singer of Senta in no way manages what Anja Silja does in the role but still I've no complaints. I enjoyed the Dutchman in particular. A fine recording and while not as good as Klemperers I could see myself listening again.
For now a detour into Russian reportoire, then I'll post again once I've listened to Idomeneo later this week.
