Quote from: Patrick Murtha on October 29, 2015, 11:35:59 AMI took the opportunity to listen to the recording of Volpone at the Internet Archive, sourced from the website radiOM.org. radiOM states: "This recording is possibly from the January 9, 1953 performance at USC in Los Angeles." The Manhattan premiere occurred in July 1953 at the off-Broadway Cherry Lane Theatre in Greenwich Village, and ran for 30 performances. It is an appealing opera, and I will eat my hat if it wasn't an influence on Leonard Bernstein's Candide, which premiered on Broadway three years later. Antheil hasn't got Bernstein's melodic genius, but apart from that, the style of the two works is very similar.

Quote from: T. D. on November 24, 2021, 12:48:02 PMJust noticed a cpo recording of Antheil's one-act opera The Brothers at Berkshire.I'd never heard of it. Reviews/commentaries seem scarce. Couldn't find anything at musicweb, for instance.[Edit] It's on youtube, I can listen and evaluate myself.
