Sunday Music

After some excursions in the area of Jazz, we could use something a bit more traditional I guess. Christoph Willibald GLUCK (Ger., Eng.) was a prolific composer of the 18th century, and has earned his place in the European cultural history with operas. Over the last years his works are rediscovered, new recordings are made. Michael HOFSTETTER (Ger.), since 2005 the principal conductor of the choir and the orchestra of the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele, recorded GLUCK’s “Ezio” – follow this link for more information about the opera and the artists of this production.

You hear Ezio’s aria “Se il fulmine sospendi, se ottengo il tuo perdono” of the third act sung by F. FAGIOLI. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Very beautiful aria, Mago. Like XL, I’ve also lurked a bit at the Schlossfestspiele website. It looks like Salieri is being reinstated, after the supposed rivalry with Mozart.
    Btw, Is that foot in the header yours? I mean the one in the red and black sports shoe… look up 🙂

  2. Hello Kahless! Great to see you again! To answer your question: Mostly worry; writing appointments, trawling for customers. Not too successful.

    I have to confess, Leni, that I am not too familiar with all this, Salierei, Mozart and Vienna in the 18th century. And no, it’s not my shoe. 🙂

    I very enjoy these voices, Joyce. The gender difference is rescinded. Thank you for your well wishes, much appreciated!

  3. No need to despair, Austere: He’s an argentinian singer who performs an 18th century aria in Italian, and it’s a very fast version – I think one can only understand it with the textbook besides.
