“I am an arrogant and impatient listener,” Benjamin Britten wrote, “but in the case of a few composers, a very few, when I hear a work I do not like I am convinced it is my own fault. Verdi is one of these composers.”
I wrote a little (very little) about Britten and Verdi when I reviewed the Metropolitan Opera’s superb production of Billy Budd for The Classical Review.
And if you pop over to Re-visioning Callas, you can read about my mad escapades.
It’s good to be posting again. VIVA VERDI!!
