QUOTE (the wizard of oz @ Jun 29 2009, 06:44 AM) Bill Evans | The Paris Concert. heart.gif

I haven't listen to that in a while, but the intro on Re: Person I Knew is just exquisite. Quite a unique version of that tune that I never really heard again on other releases.

Siroe, Prince of Persia - Italian Opera (1728) by George Friderick Handel. This was the last opera but one before Handel was forced temporarily out of the Opera business by The Beggar's Opera by John Gay. The latter is acknowledged to be represent the re-birth of English opera, dormant since Purcell a century earlier. Coincidentally, Handel was the director of the Royal Academy of Music, which essentially went bankrupt that year. So he had a pretty rough time. Siroe only ran for a few weeks.

This recording was off the BBC website - here are the details: http://www.handelhouse.org/handel2009/siroe

It sounds great in my car on my new Sony deck driving the MDX-66XLP changer.

Sunday night's Henry Wood Promenade concert from London's Albert Hall. Handel wrote some 42 operas in his lifetime, roughly 1 per year over an extended period. This one is called Partenope, and has an amazing plot where the Princess Rosmira, disguised as a man, is challenged to a (bare-chested) duel with her former lover.

Handel got a bit desperate after Beggar's Opera, and had to resort to shock tactics to try to get the public back in his theatre.

I am posting the last 10 minutes as an ATRAC3 (LP4) file for anyone interested. I'm sure it needs to be removed at some point, but a snippet like this can hardly excite anyone's ire, especially in a nonstandard compressed format like this.

I hope you will agree with me, even those who wouldn't consider listening to Italian opera in this lifetime, that this is a totally remarkable 10 minutes of listening. Especially since there are about 5500 people present (and totally silent throughout), the majority of them having been standing for the previous 4 hours.

Extract from Partenope

You will need to change the extension to .OMA when you save this, it is NOT a valid ZIP file. However somewhat to my surprise it played perfectly in Windows Media Player (probably something I did following Avrin's directions to enable Atrac3 codec), and for you it will play in Sonic Stage.

I've got the Handel bug too - listening to the recent Op 1 Sonatas set recorded by AAM/Richard Egarr. Sounds fab in glorious MDLP2 through the stereo.

Speaking of Handel has anyone got a copy of The Electronic Messiah by the Canadian Electronic Ensemblr. I bought the LP many many years ago, and it has since disappeared. I would love a copy of that, it is incredible

Listening to Ror-Shak's 'Fate or Faith' on their 'Deep' album.

Somewhat bordering on vocal electronica but with strong rhythm and firm bass and none of that redundant beats..

listening to my CW playlists on my 120G Zune - setting up background country music for my wife's daughter who is coming over for a cookout - setting it up on my Double-Sound-Bar system in the living room -

i plan on having wall to wall CW music (non-stop) -(until someone complains) - and then we will "Flip-the-coin) to see what happens -

footnote#1 - i DO have a "Two Headed US Nickel/Nickle/5 cent coin" - i always "win" -

I can't believe I'm posting this, but I am listening at LP4!!! to a Handel Opera. Most of them I managed to capture at LP2 but this was just too long for 163 minutes. No distortion, good balance, way batter than anything from the cassette era or off radio, and playing with Type-S probably good enough.

There's a lot more coming in this year of Handel's 250th (since his death in 1759) so this link will give some idea.

Well, I really could use some more of those SL-1200MK4's, so when I eventually will have more cash flow, who knows. Though I'll pay extra expenses for a taxi, not you lugging that weight around!

I will keep my Eyes opened
