Sorry; I just had to switch to jazz on WKCR for a while. There's so much more to "Aida" than the orchestral version (not even a chorus!!) of the triumphal scene, which we hear ALL THE TIME!! How about the final scene? how about the Nile scene? How about "Celeste Aida". . . .?
This is like the so-called classic rock stations that play the same 3-4 songs of any given performer over and over: WQXR seems to be deliberately ignoring the riches in its library.
Thanks for the Parsifal. How absolutely lovely. I am 76 years old and it still shakes me up a bit.
