Live

August 16, 2012
Turandot - Puccini
Seattle Opera - McCaw Hall, Seattle

Claudio Arrau
I know it's a fairy tale, but I can't help wondering about the morning after, when the confederated armies of the kings whose sons had been cruelly slain attack the city and slaughter all, including the happy couple. The set was colorful and brave, especially since all those hoops could be mistaken for all sorts of things: cheerios, pineapple slices, or even (given the configuration) a certain common household plumbing fixture, complete with a gong where the handle would be. The music was performed fabulously. I just have a hard time taking the enterprise seriously.

Karlheinz Stockhausen
Plates of stone stacked: imaged in terms of the relative persistence of pitch classes in registral space. The pacing of texture to texture gives it the affectual characteristics of a classical theme & variations.
