And finally, we come to the last night of our Ring-watching experience, cher public. PBS presents Götterdämmerung at 9:00 pm.
Stevey,thanks so much for mentioning Margiono. As a near-pauper in fly-over land, I don’t get to hear world-class music-making as often as I’d like, but I will NEVER forget a Minnesota Orchestra performance of the Glagolitic Mass, many years ago, also under de Waart, for which the soprano was the lovely and unknown (to me) Charlotte Margiono. I remember her wearing some baby’s breath in her hair and when she began to sing she was both beautiful and vulnerable and it was a deeply spiritual experience for me. Thanks
Well, I guess I’ll just have to re-post this :
IMO the most successful Ah! Perfido ever recorded, not just the voice and phrasing which seems to me to be appropriate to turn of the century Vienna, but also the musical direction and the sound of the orchestra.
Who was it, CerqFarr? It doesn’t show for me?
Charlotte Margiono. You should have guessed
here’s the direct Utube link
Oh thank you, my dear sir, but once again, I am unable to load a video of Charlotte Margiono, which you have loaded for me! Remember the problem with Fidelio?
That’s okay, I will search it out somewhere. I did buy a selection of Fidelio with her, and thought it quite fine. I would expect the Ah! Perfido to be just as good.
Hey now, what about good ol’ Eileen’s Ah Perfido?
Hope you will be hearing something interesting there this coming season—!
CerquettiFarrell: Thanks so much for (re-)posting the video and providing the direct youtube link.
I’ve not heard it before and found it: Simple, Subtle and Sublime.
