<<  -- 4 --  Robert Anderson    SAFE PASSAGE?

-------------------------------

After watching this DVD, I was at a memorial service for a distinguished diplomat at which was sung the farewell terzettino for the departing soldiers, 'Soave sia il vento'. One could only wish a safe passage for all concerned. The mood has remained with me, and I must regard this performance mainly as a disappointing monument to a Così that failed to come off, and as a 150th tribute to Mozart that succeeded, as it were, in sounding too many wrong notes.
