What Are You Listening To This Weekend

Friday! That means it is time for our weekly "what are you listening to this weekend" segment.

I've been toying with the idea of starting a listening group; just like a reading group except with opera recordings instead of books. We'd vote on an opera to listen to, listen to it the following week and then have some discussion over it. Any takers?

Anyhow, as promised, I'll be listening to Pique Dame in my newly landscaped backyard -- alright, partially completed backyard -- FINE, very evenly leveled dirtpatch of a backyard. Happy now?

If I have time I'll delve into Calexico's new album.

But first I need to walk around the dog park with a pair of headphones and a camera because I'm getting low on pictures to use.

Have a safe weekend!

I'm listening to John Adams' El Nino this weekend. No, I'm not jumping on the holiday bandwagon just yet. It's been a while and I want to get a little more familiar with it before I get to the newly released Flowering Tree.

Pique Dame and El Nino... I'm in adventurous company! :o)

Smorg'll play it save and stick with the CDs of Tasmin Little playing Mendelssohn's E-minor violin concerto and Astrid Varnay's Opera Scenes and Orchestral Songs. Cheerio!
