It's on Spotify and Deezer, but I can't find it on Tidal,  where all the Chandos albums seem to be more than 5 years old.

 

I should clarify that I don't have the "Hi-Fi" lossless Deezer service, so I don't know if recent Chandos CDs are available for lossless streaming there.

Some more French music while traveling:

 

Checking out this new Pentagon opera release of Bizet’s Les pêcheurs des perles on Qobuz. It’s always nice (as really rare these days) to see new high res opera releases.

Obviously it’s not the pentagon who released this but Pentatone. Lovely autocorrect

There are military bands, though they're not generally known for their opera performances.

I imagine up to a couple of decades ago, most of them had trouble finding sopranos.

Yet they are quite prone to referring to their actions occurring in a theatre (British spelling).

Trouser roles were a hot button issue as well.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

with all the things AI can do these days, I wonder why nobody invented the Jarrett/Gould filter yet. 

 

I guess it was discussed before..) I had not a slightest problem with his vocalizing since I first heard his LPs in mid-seventies. It could be it was not so clearly heard in LP format though.

 

Filter exist, it is our brain – we can "turn off" anything we do not need to hear.

Maybe it’s just me but I find that, depending on my mood, his moaning enhances the experience in certain of his albums, e.g La Scala, Koln etc.

I'd never go as far as enhancing, but there are moments when it's less distracting then otherwise.

But isn’t the playing just fantastic?

 

It is indeed, which is why I am a bit disappointed...

Brian Eno' producing made it quite outstanding. Byrne's album with Eno, My Live In the Bush of Ghosts recorded at the same time was even more adventurous. 

I agree on that.
