Least Favorite Aria (To sing): Alles fuhlt der liebe leute. too fast for me now, but ill get there and ill like it in the future.

Least Favorite Composer: Bach. Im sorry, but his fans are so elitist and they sing it like weak little 2 year olds. and it sounds all the same.

Really Donna A over Donna E? She's a static character. DO explain

Also - I am a wagnerian, and I LOVE Bach. I don't sing it like a 2 year old. Not.At.All.

Nor me.

Then again, this post kind of deals in absolutes, which we have very few of in the world in general... let alone the world of Opera.

And he is right about the number of Bach singers who dont do it justice. He just needs to hear the right people sing it.
