Today's Musical Postcard From Nowhere

Featuring Renée Fleming.
Parody of the cover of marbles by British prog group Marillion. I didn't have any marbles.
Those are Carnegie Hall Ricola cough drops. 
Yes I'm still on a (much needed) vacation in parts unknown. After the jump, some nice footage of Renée Fleming singing the Countess in the final scene of Richard Strauss' Capriccio. Ulf Schirmer conducts.

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
