Weekend 2-4-12

The plan for this weekend is basically to curl into a ball and sleep for about eighteen hours.

After that, I have a production of Ariodante to watch (the music library has the ENO version!) and possibly this goddamn recording of Ariadne auf Naxos in English that I have been listening to in patches for about three weeks but actually have to sit down and absorb. Some skepticism as to Strauss in English, but we’ll see how it goes.

I listened to the DiDonato/Gauvin/Lemieux/Il Complesso Barocco recording of Handel’s Ariodante again while I was enroute to the west coast the other day. How wonderful is that recording? (This is a rhetorical question. IT IS WONDERFUL.)
