O heureuse Iphigénie

Our old, old, old friends at Opera Depot are belatedly celebrating the birthday of regal Régine Crespin by discounting all of her recordings at 50% off as well as offering a free download of a brand new compilation featuring the French diva in excerpts from Iphigénie en Tauride, Die Walküre, Parsifal, Fedra and Werther.

“woeful” not an option

La Cieca’s old, old, old friend Kelly Rinne (who, not so incidentally, masterminded the rescue of parterre.com during the late server unpleasantness) is launching a new show on ClassicalMusicBroadcast.com. The show features new releases of instrumental, vocal, opera and modern classical music, and Kelly is looking for a great name for the show.

If you’ve got a bang-up title for what will surely be a bang-up show, email Kelly. She’s giving away a 4CD prize pack to the winner!
