Cher Public

Talor dal mio forziere

A summer performance of a wintry treat is this week’s bonbon from the Mike Richter collection, this time from his “Opera from Munich” CD-ROM, AE204. It’s a live, in-house performance of La bohème under the magical baton of Carlos Kleiber, with a couple of guest artists named Freni and Pavarotti.
