Mozart: Symphony No. 40 [Tate]


The ability to talk comes with knowledge. The ability to listen comes with wisdom.

The Mikado. Cd 2. Well,despite the criticism at oak apple press (Gilbert & Sullivan central!) I find this a very enjoyable,spirited and well sung recording of the famous operetta. The singing is spirited,the dialogue is delivered in a lively,entertaining fashion. In fact,it could even become a favourite........or even,my favourite;because of the inclusion of dialogue. There may be some cuts;but,it all comes over (to me,anyway) as a breath of fresh of air,after some of the more stilted British recordings I've had to endure. I must admit,I find myself,increasingly,warming to the Ohio Light Opera recordings of G & S. I even like their Princess Ida. Although,they've improved allot since then. And their Ruddigore was the most fun,since the 1966 BBC recording. I only hope they will release a good recording of Iolanthe,now!
