To mark the 90th birthday of Pierre Boulez, our friends at Opera Depot are offering a free download of excerpts from his epochal 1976 Ring cycle at Bayreuth as well as steep discounts on all other Bouleziana.
Not only are our friends at Opera Depot burning up the internet with a one-day sale on their entire collection at 60% off, they’re also offering a free download of 15 different versions of the complete Immolation Scene from Götterdämmerung featuring Astrid Varnay, Kirsten Flagstad, Martha Mödl, Margaret Harshaw, Birgit Nilsson, Amy Shuard, Anja Silja, Nadezda Kniplová, Gladys Kuchta, Ludmila Dvorakova, Helga Dernesch, Rita Hunter, Catarina Ligendza, Berit Lindholm and Gwyneth Jones.
La Cieca is sure that the cher public (pictured), just like all other red-blooded Americans or foreign nationals, will spend the day today doing their “Cyber Monday” shopping. Your doyenne recommends you peruse Amazon for your general needs and, for live recordings, Opera Depot, who are offering a whopping 60% discount on their entire collection for today only.
Now’s the time to fill those gaps in your collection, cher public.
In honor of “Talk Like a Pirate Day” La Cieca invites you, the cher public, to share reminiscences (and, where applicable, YouTube clips) of your favorite pirate recordings.
