Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna star in the 2009 Metropolitan Opera production of Puccini’s 'La Rondine'. This new production, directed by Nicholas Joël, was the company’s first staging in 70 years. This elegant romance is the least-known work of the mature Giacomo Puccini. The story concerns a kept woman who defies convention to chase a dream of romantic love with an earnest, if naïve, young man. This Met Opera production features the dynamic soprano Angela Gheorghiu and Frenchborn tenor Roberto Alagna performing the roles of Magda and Ruggero, it blooms into its rightful place in the glorious Puccini canon. 'La Rondine' was commissioned by Vienna’s Carltheater in 1913. Due to the impending outbreak of World War I, premiered in 1917, at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo with Gilda Dalla Rizza and Tito Schipa.

This is a first part to a 2 part E.P. series of unreleased tracks from the "Tightly Unwound" sessions. The first track is a smoother, softer version of the "Tightly Wound" track from the album and it is also edited down one minute shorter than the album track. The parts edited out are mostly instrumental repeats and may not be very noticeable that they are not there. "The West Coast" is a mostly acoustic song, very short and not much of a standout, on the 2nd half you get the nice Pineapple Thief harmonies and then it's over quickly.

Daß Partitur und Partitur nicht dasselbe ist, mag eine Binsenweisheit sein, eine folgenreiche allerdings. Im Zeitalter nicht nur der Verwissenschaftlichung der Noten-Edition, sondern auch der historischen Aufführungspraxis droht selbst wissenschaftlich fundierten Gesamtausgaben das „Verfallsdatum“: neue Erkenntnisse, neue Schriftdeutungen, das Auffinden verschollen geglaubter Autographe – all dies fließt in die Editionspraxis ein, und selbst scheinbar problemlose Klassikerausgaben werden fragwürdig oder gar dubios.

As part of their ongoing reissue of the Crosby, Stills & Nash catalog, Rhino put out Demos, a collection of early home recordings of staples from the CSN catalog, demos recorded both alone and together between the years of 1968 and 1971. Unlike some similar collections, not much here is especially revelatory; apart from "Love the One You're With," here almost droning at the beginning, there are no great differences in lyrics or approach, with such solo recordings as "Almost Cut My Hair" pointing clearly to their latter full-blown incarnations.
