Broken promise. -- Last weekend I said I would no longer report on our weekly excursions into Viennese musical life. Here is another exception. This Saturday we heard Emi Nakamura (soprano) and Luigi Manta (piano) perform pieces by Caccini, Torelli, Scarlatti, Caldara, Vivaldi, Durante, Porpora and Hasse. I had never heard any of these songs before. But one was more touching and romantic than the next. Here is my favorite (performed by another Japanese soprano).
