Quarterly Music Report: 2010 Q3

Opera Man

The listening for the third quarter of 2010 was monothematic: Opera with a vengeance. I’ve always loved opera and I finally took the time to go to the main branch of the public library here and check out as many CDs as I could possibly listen to. It was such as long list that I can only mention the composers/performers and not the individual pieces.

[Disclaimer: I actually can’t stand Adam Sandler but I couldn’t pass up Opera Man for this occasion.]
