Some prodigious vocal talents, some precociously talented musicians, and, in a few cases, both qualities present in the same person.
What’s in the reference section of my iPod this year? Paisiello’s Re Teodoro in Venezia, lots of Handel (Agrippina, Alcina, Semele, Rinaldo), Britten/Gay The Beggar’s Opera, Rossini’s La pietra del paragone, Mozart’s Il re pastore, Cavalli’s La calisto, Bizet’s Docteur Miracle, Chabrier’s Une education manqué, and about a dozen others. (Don’t read too much into this list! If only represents those pieces we’re reacquainting ourselves with, not the short list for next season!)
