    This will be fantastic, a live recording from ROCG with great forces and soloists from 2015.

    There are times when I am very happy to have a good radio!

    Best wishes from George

    I noticed this earlier - I guess it`s to make up for no opera tomorrow night due to Cardiff Singer of the Year (Which is no substitute).

    We will certainly be listening.

    Nothing wrong with the singing or playing, but I found the conducting bland... as so often seems to be the case in this, one of my favourite operas.

    But then I like the 1970 Rostropovich/Bolshoi recording far more than any other, the one the critics panned as histrionic. It isn't - it's passionate, presumably in a well established Bolshoi tradition. Other interpretations sound bloodless beside it.

    PS it's available complete on Youtube if you want to sample it - I would suggest the Letter Scene, and on to the end of Act 1

    Dear Marshamp.

    I thought the performance was "very good" without quite scaling the heights to absolute greatness or intensity. So thanks for the suggestion. I'll give that a go when I have a couple of spare hours one evening!

    Best wishes from George
