  1. Although the I-Player is available in the UK for seven days I'm not sure if it is outside of the UK. I hope I'm wrong :))

  2. Thank you for this reminder!
    18:00 means British Summer Time, right? So it would be 19:00 in Central Europe.

  3. I found sth I haven't seen before. Look here to see Anna Netrebko, Dmitrii Hvorostovski & Ruxandra Donose singing La ci darem la mano as a trio:

  4. Yes, I had seen this one before

  5. Excelent, thanks for reminding me! I haven't been to see it love but would love to listen :-)

  6. :-(
    how could I forget???? (I have a family visit!)
    I just realised the broadcast was on - 20 min before it's finished....
    I do hope hope you're recording it, Carlos - and I would LOVE to hear it - even though I have the cd set - but I'm sure this is even better!

    Please let me know!
