Quote from: knight on April 28, 2007, 04:21:44 AMMost tracks are conducted by Leinsdorf, I think he could have generated a bit more excitement, especially in the Ariadne, his pacing of Salome is much better., though these are not at all the sonambulant type of performances that Eschenbach permitted Renee Fleming to committ on her Strauss scenes disc. The recordings come from 1965 to 73, though there is under an hour here. A valuable disc showing a singer at the top of her game and applying her skills to some highways and byways of pieces I think she mostly did not perform on stage.Mike
Quote from: Anne on June 17, 2007, 11:22:39 AMI really like Hvorostovsky's "Songs and Dances of Death" by Mussorgsky.
Quote from: knight on June 17, 2007, 10:16:25 PMAnne, I can dance all round your mention of Kalinka, but I don't have it. My folk song disc with Hvorostovsky is called Dark Eyes, there is a folk-orchestra. I am not over fond of the disc.Mike
