No one should be without Maria with Cecilia Bartoli. I keep listening, and I like it more and more. And I liked it a lot to start with.
I highly recommend this recording of Strauss Lieder with Jonas Kaufmann.
Williard White's Porgy and Bess is now on DVD and in the stores. This is a great performance by everyone involved.
And this is the only Tristan und Isolde I have ever liked, with two spectacular performances. Ignore the dumb set.
And don't forget to give this spectacular Eugene Onegin with Fleming and Hvorostovsky. I'm buying this one myself. It's coming out on DVD December 17th. Have it sent directly for Christmas.
This may be controversial, but I liked Anna Netrebko's I Puritani quite a lot. This one is also coming out on DVD December 17th.
If you must have your Anna Netrebko with Rolando Villazon, you must have this one. It's available now.
Surprise someone with Christine Schaefer's Pierrot Lunaire. Tell them you were thinking of giving them a trip to New York City when you came across this film and decided to send it instead.
