Well,how about today.......The Damnation of Faust---Berlioz [sp?] on live from the Met...........Did anyone listen ? Great opera--even though in french---- Italians usually get to me, BUT oft the French enter to make it all a wee more exciting !!!!
Do you prefer French or Italien opera ?

Heard Rachael-Barton-Pine today on radio interview and playing session.
She plays extraordinary well-with any type of genre !
can't figure out how to do away with these spaces !
She is qualified as a music history buff,as well as a complete command of the musical literature involved !!! I'm sure you all know this BUT it is a different scenario when you hear her live in person--on radio.
Needless to say----she is a treasure !!!!!!
Thanks to Rachael & Laurie for the interview !
