It may be called the Fidelio Podcast, but it’s about Rossini
This absolutely charming podcast is by Marie Ross, the Associate Principal Clarinetist with the Ensemble Matheus. We’re posting the link because it is so refreshing to hear the enthusiasm of a young musician for Rossini. She’s quite a story teller in addition to being quite knowledgable. We hope you’ll enjoy ” My year of living dangerously 4 – Rossini operas.”
Although her focus in discussing the Rossini revival is rather narrow ( based on her own experience) she makes a remarkable observation about Alidoro’s aria in “La Cenerentola” – pointing out that a key change similar to one in a song by Michael Jackson actually was first used by Rossini!
Here’s the link to the podcast: www.fideliopodcast.com. There are many episodes so you shall have to browse to find the Rossini ones, but it’s well worth the journey!
