A concert performance of Don Giovanni on Medici.tv (how awesome is that project?) – in combination with a hedge-trimming/bush-sculpting competition that is apparently taking place in the neigborhood – it’s a perfect Wednesday morning music.
It’s a beautiful afternoon outside, I am drinking tea and eating a donut in the middle of the day – that’s a living! While busying myself with some browsing of the internets, I came across this great rendition of Verdi’s Ella giammai m´amo – King Filip’s aria from Don Carlo – one of the most amazing pieces of music written for bass I think.
This version is done by a German bass Rene Pape at the opening of Oslo Opera – enjoy!
