Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
Sony, as we reported, is recording Cosi fan tutte in central Russia. Click on her name below to watch the fabulous Malena in action, on her Facebook page.
I always wathcning this great Mezzosoprano from Sweden. An fenomenal and good Artist in both a Lyric and “Clowny” way of expression… With mutch and deep Professionality and joy deep from heart. Shes give it for 200%… Every Performance or on an Opera stage… Good-Great-Generosity…
Conducting with headphones, now that’s interesting…
Really? Is it? I mean, for something with “click” like a videogame music – ok, but why in opera?
Conductor does look a bit crazy.
Last time they played it he asked musicians to stand up all the way during rehearsals. I feel good they are being seated now. But then I’m thinking – it’s probably the noise issue, not him being more considerate.
