That's fascinating opera to be certain, but I don't qualify it nowhere near Tippett at his most inspired.

Too broad a brush. Even where a work is admittedly mixed, it may contain passages which represent the composer at his most inspired.

You're too quick to pigeon-hole, John!

Donald (Duck) Dunn recently died, he deserves a RIP thread....

He does. I almost started one but then thought, not many here care about Memphis soul. Why bother? I mourned him alone.

You were born too late for soul music, Karl. A pity  ;)

Oh sorry, I had been listening through Neeme Jarvi's Essential Stravinsky set. :)


(I know: it's an old post.)

Very interesting set!  Though I can hardly think that either the Op. 1 Symphony in Eb, or the Circus Polka, are in any way essential Stravinsky.
