Also, one of my friends referred to PDQ Bach as BMX Bach but I couldn’t think of a way to include this in the chart.

After only 5 CDs’ worth? Nooooooo, really? (teehee) P.S. Give in to the Giulio Cesare urge (do you have the one with Kozena yet?) LikeLike Five discs plus a few other discs that I also have . . . (I went through a lute phase in graduate school.) I’ve got the GC with Kozena, and the one with Jennifer Larmore as Caesar – there’s a new one that I saw on Amazon while I was looking for a present for someone else. It’s with Lemieux and Gauvin – definitely a draw for me in both cases. The ensemble is Il Complesso Barocco w/ Alan Curtis, some of whose versions of other Handel operas I’ve found a little dry. But, well, as Gollum said of the ring, we wants it….. LikeLike Worth a listen if one can find it: It’s totally anachronistic, and I am not sure it’s even available anywhere any more — it was a live recording on some label like Melodram — but there’s a version in German, with Lucia Popp as Cleo, Walter Berry (I think) as Caesar, but most importantly, Christa Ludwig as Cornelia and Fritz Wunderlich as Sesto. definitly pre-historically correct, but contains some fine singing, as I recall. LikeLike Found it! Amazon and Arkiv both have it, different cover art but looks like same recording. When I get back from vacation, it may be time for TWO new recordings of Giulio Cesare. LikeLike I used to have it on CD, but no more. So you can easily guess what I downloaded last night and am listening to this afternoon! LikeLike Comments are closed.
