Lol... Ok, so my lame attempt to build suspense kinda fell flat.
"The Berlin Concert: Live from the Waldbuhne"http://www.amazon.com/Berlin-Concert-Liv...47881372&sr=1-2
When Placido is the weak link (not really), you know you have something great.
Netrebko is so beautiful and talented its painful.
I don't think I could make it through a whole opera but these selections are just right for the casual listener who can appreciate great instrumental and vocal talent. No matter the genre.
Ok, so this is not exactly brand new- but I didn't see it listed and thought it should be.
It has literally changed the way I look at music. (so to speak)
If you try this one I think you will enjoy.
(Sorry I didn't research how to make a proper link.)
