    Summary

    Wolfgang's gaze doesn't waver, and he doesn't look threatened or even mildly fazed by the inevitable fact. He just smiles that tiny meaningful smile as he gently laces his fingers together with Ludwig's. He looks at him now, and his smile stays in place, only getting a bit brighter.

    Summary

    "Darkling I listen; and, for many a time
    I have been half in love with easeful Death,
    Call'd him soft names in many a musèd rhyme,
    To take into the air my quiet breath;
    Now more than ever seems it rich to die..."

    John Keats, "Ode to a Nightingale."

    Summary

    It makes Aaron want to move, to drift across the broad, resonant space he can hear in Robert’s harmonics. It’s the kind of music one wants desperately to live in, and it’s that as much as anything else that makes Aaron tell Robert that if he finds himself in New York, Aaron will do whatever he can.

    Summary

    En 1734 Farinelli visita por primera vez Londres contratado por la compañía de Händel. Por entonces, Händel había dado pie ya a su particular guerra contra el compositor Porpora por los teatros y óperas londinenses. Sí: rivalidad operística por los estilos y los cantantes. La sociedad londinense quedó dividida entre los dos compositores. Farinelli era el cantante de Händel y Porpora contaba con la inestimable presencia de Senesino (otro castratto) que abandonó la ópera de Händel para unirse a Porpora, que a su vez era el compositor que había propiciado el debut de Farinelli en Bolonia. Ergo: culebrón.
