Thank you Mr. Tim. It also happens that if I leave the computer unattended for 5 minutes or more, the QXR screen goes completely black with just the heading on and cannot retrieve the webpage. Must cancel out to something else. Best wishes

I share the bewilderment about Marcello Giordani (!)--he came in a distant fourth among the principals. The Russian baritone with the unpronounceable name walked away with the evening, to me--phantastic presence and charisma, not to mention the voice. The soprano was amazing, as a voice, but the close-ups favored by HD do not favor singers whose shape blatantly contradicts the role they are playing. And Ferruccio has been around for so long--it's like meeting a beloved relative at a family reunion. Oh, and I detest "papier mache realism" sets...

Attention: Concetta Nardone from Nassau county You say you have trouble downloading WQXR?? Hello Friend. Me Too. Ever since last year when they made some "Technical Improvements", I have trouble holding the download, and when I am actually trying to work while I listen, the download just disconnects. They told me .."You are the only member having difficulties". But, Now I know it is me and Concetta Nardone! Gratzi Bella.. T2..ANYONE ELSE IN THIS POOL?

THANK YOU LARRY EISENBERG OF BIG APPLE I have just returned from an enjoyable Saturday afternoon, NY Met at a local Iowa Shopping Center HDTV Movie House. I am a very big Marcello Giordano fan, but just could not understand his problem. Either he did not "have it" or his microphone was not hooked up. Every other cast member, and chorus were Solid..but Giordano just never seemed to get his beautiful full voice all the way out to Iowa!..How did Giordano sound LIVE at Lincoln Center?...More coments please.... T2

Mr. Maurice, I do know there is more than the one soprano aria. Read the libretto and score while listening a few times. Still have found very little. Early Verdi. Too much oomph pah pah. Interesting wedding night for Ernani. Furlantto sounded a little long in the tooth. Really like Mr. Eisenberg's poems. A real gift.

If they think there is only one number in Ernani, one wonders if they ever heard a performance of Ernani all the way through. Non-stop brilliant music and pure Verdi.

Beduzza Cavanaugh, Other than the Ernani Involami, I never was captured by it. Sometimes, I think opera fans are afraid to say they do not like something for fear of being thought of as not one of the cognoscenti(?). Looking forward to Aida but last time around I started a kerfufel for making snarky remarks about the large sized singers. As for a FORZA, you betcha. A real Spanish massacre with great music. Now I must go and foment revolution. Best wishes

I thought I was the only one who really didn't care for ERNANI. I'm in good company if this isn't one of your favorites. How about a good FORZA?

Greetings Beduzza Cavanaugh, Hope you are well as well as all the listeners to today's broadcast. This is not one of my favorites but will listen whilst doing my thing today, such as cooking, paperwork, fomenting revolution. I seem to be having trouble downloading QXR and wonder if other listeners are having the same problem. Best wishes to all

Hi Beduzza! All who enjoy Ernani, should enjoy it today. I can't wait for AIDA to cause a rumble.
