[7] John Adams – The Death of Klinghoffer

10 Dec

Throughout December I am going to revisit the first months of this journey, taking time at the end of this year to remember where I’ve been and what I’ve heard.

. . . To Hear Before I Blog

I think Moon cheated here.

This appears to be (on a quick scanning of the 1,000) the only “recording” that is a video rather than just audio.  And much as I love to listen to Operas and Musicals, Original Soundtracks and Cast Recordings, I prefer to see the work first.  The visuals are often required to understand the story, the nuance, the drama.

I fear this may cause me some problems later on with those Operas and Musicals I have never seen.

Watching theater is not what I’m doing here – that would be a very different blog.  My intent is to give the recordings genuine attention by setting aside time for listening to the them at my desk, on my commute, over the dinner table, lying in bed once the lights (and TV) are off for the night.

I don’t have time in my busy life for watching, only listening.
