Vintage Vibes: Ye Olde Grammophone, II

AN_Grmmphn 11_06.png

[This is probably the only Netrebko photo I will ever post. It is possibly also the only time Netrebko has ever worn a white shirt. – My vintage Grammophone reading continues with issue 11/2006, p. 113 (for Renée Fleming without a white shirt, check below the cut]

I cannot quite decide what my favorite part of the November 2006 issue is – the slew of opinionated reviews, or the prognosis on the future of “the download revolution” (gasp!! – and including a tutorial on how to do it right!). Plus news on Renée Fleming on social media – “her myspace site has 1500 friends”.


The issue also features a lengthy portrait of Fleming (I know, I know, but for inexplicable reasons, they don’t interview Antonacci every month), which I upload specifically for towanda, though who knows who else might enjoy this? Also, I cannot preach inclusiveness to my students and not set a good example myself.
So here is a 300dpi scan of the full Fleming interview available for your reading pleasure via Dropbox. I need to work on my lyric soprano credit again, since I apparently relapsed (next thing you know, I’ll be posting Dame Kiri reviews).

    1. So the Eye Bags crowd is officially old enough to remember MySpace… We will rename this place “Opera Cougars” before we even know it.



  1. Also, I love that dress she’s wearing in the photo facing the title page of the interview. She likes it too, I have um a few photos of her performing in it I’ve found. Although here her head looks oddly photoshopped on? I’ll see if I can post one at the Window for you.


    1. She seems to get photoshopped a lot – I am guessing everyone’s shots are, these days, but that angle is weird. Did they cut away too much?
