Sound and Clouds and Thunder (76)

[We have been here for 76 weeks, no, we are not running out of steam. – Giuseppina Bridelli, singing “In braccio a mille furie”, from Porpora’s “Semiramide rconosciuta”, Lyon 2017. – Clip with thanks to giuseppina bridelli]

Here, have some rage to dole out at this week. And pack those two punches just after the 1:20 mark because as long as we have mezzo-sopranos (and contraltos. And, fine, the occasional soprano), we have vocal fuel for the resistance.

(As for Bridelli – this is not even what she does best. Find her Cavalli or her Rossi someplace (coughitmightbetherecough) and recharge at large for the weeks and months ahead.)

  1. thanks for posting this, I was only familiar with the aria via Hallenberg (and maybe Fagioli?) – a good one to be introduced to Bridelli.

    1. My pathway is through Bartoli, which is a tough one to unhear, but now I need to search for Hallenberg, too.
