Bastianini has a glorious voice and his interpretation is immaculate. This is a fine CD. I'm very pleased with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rachmaninov: All Night Vigil, 31 Dec 2012

This is a stunning CD. The voices of the Latvian Radio Choir have to be heard to be believed. There must be something in the air in Latvia that they produce such great singers! I probably play this CD every other night as my musical treat before going to sleep. It clears my mind of any worries. Wonderful

1.0 out of 5 stars Ioera Houses of Rurope by QAndras Kaldor, 31 Dec 2012

This review is from: Opera Houses of Europe (Hardcover)
I purchased this book after buying another book by the same author entitled Great Opera Houses since this one concentrated on just European Houses. It has information and watercolor renditions of these buildings and the book is quite large so the illustration are bigger than in the previous book. I am very happy to have purchased both.

I purchased this because I am unable to visit ALL the opera houses I would like to. This gives both information about and delightful watercolour illustrations of these magnificent and ornate buildings and is probably the next best thing to actually visiting them.

I found many of the anecdotes amusing - also informative. A good value buy, but the print is rather small

1.0 out of 5 stars DVD of Rossini's SEMIRAMIDE, 31 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rossini: Semiramide (DVD)
This seldom performed opera is Rossini's last and this particular performance has an amazing cast of singers who do justice to the extremely difficult singing that is required. It captures them at their vocal peak and the costumes, sets and acting are first rate. I was particularly keen to aquire this opera because it has Samuel Ramey - a magnificent American bass - in his prime. The opera is sung in Italian with English only subtitles so is perhaps not suited to anyone who does not understand either of these languages. However that can be overcome by borrowing a library libretto in the appropriate language.
