While You Were Out

- Lovely soprano Priti Gandhi's Opera Diary continues, this time, about going it alone in recital. Did you get to see her on Saturday? The Aria Serious crew had tickets, but missed it, as we were learning the valuable lesson that plans to have dinner with friends and kids at 5 PM, actually means you'll be walking out the door at 7 PM. I'm sure there's a mathematical formula about this somewhere.

- Nabucco aired last night on XLNC1. How did it sound for you?

- British tenor Philip Langridge passed away last week on Friday. He was 70 and known for his portrayal of works by Benjamin Britten roles and was an eloquent interpreter of Handel, Mozart, Schubert, Janacek and Stravinsky. We've included a clip of him singing below.

- How do you sell Classical Music to the masses? The UK Times has some ideas.
