Just because I’m incredibly nice (Hah! … joking … really!) I’m going to post little “Cosi Treats”. For those of you who don’t know the opera, perhaps it will get you to attend a performance someday. I can hope ….

For the most part I’m going to stick with the Glyndebourne 2006 clips, because I really like how nice and clear they are, and they have the English subtitles. (I wish the whole opera was up, but I haven’t found it if it is.)

This first ones, though, aren”t from them. I did think the overture deserved a hearing! Or two. Note the huge difference in tempo, and of course the pitch difference is due to the early instruments vs modern instruments:
