Listening to the Twitch streamer (a long complicated story) Hasanabi describe his first visit to the opera last night. He describes Tosca as follows: "If you think anime has filler, you ain't seen anything"

‘It would be a mistake to see him as primarily a textual scholar. Albert was above all an empiricist. The information he regarded as most credible was that which he had personally observed.’

@thewagnerian Was listening to Solti's Das Rheingold from that interesting vinyl archive from Boston Public Library. archive.org/details/vinyl_bost Clearly someone was a fan of "Schwüles Gedünst schwebt in der Luft" given the amount of pops and clicks at the start of it! 😂 It was sensational. I broke into spontaneous applause at the end. Also strangely enjoyed the orchestral arrangements on "Music of the Flower Children".

@d3rrick @thewagnerian And like Parsifal, nobody knows what is going on here. I suppose that makes Gurnemanz the server admin.

Thanks @BBCRadio3 for featuring #reflections on #recordreview this morning! “There’s energy and life that flows through these quartets” 👉 bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc @classicalmusic

We are happy that our music’s being picked up via streaming services by people who otherwise wouldn’t have had access to it. There’s no reason for us to be on the streaming platforms other than visibility (through findability) 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️ more on our personal stance as put into words by Alex Ross 👉 newyorker.com/culture/cultural @CeciliaBell @thewagnerian @sehe @classicalmusic

Often impressed by Van Zweden's Romantic recordings - late and otherwise. But greatly impressed with this set:
