More from the Bartered Bride! This famous set! Wonderful singing from the golden age of the big labels! They really don't make 'em like this anymore! Sad I think the old Czech (or was!) Zdeněk Košler and Zdeněk Chalabala recordings (Supraphon) have more of that earthy,peasant vigour,though. And I love the sound of their orchestras in this repertoire. The Jaroslav Krombholc (RCA/BMG) was surprisingly good,though. In fact,I'd rate all four recordings,highly! Although,For a newcomer,I'd recommend Košler,probably! And you get an english libretto! Not that I'm sitting here glued to it,mind!! Roll Eyes Grin And should I be calling peasant's earthy in these politically correct times?! Even if there any peasant's these days,earthy or otherwise! At least,I don't think there are any living in this street? Not that I've had much time to think about it, since the Lord of the Manor put up the rent here! Sad
