Opera "Dedo" - 'Form-My Life'

This is the thirteenth installment in the "28 in Twenty-Eight" blog series by Robert Ian Winstin.


  1. Dude! Excellent work. Love the opera. Is it available?

  2. You are truly talented and versatile!

  3. I am so sad that this series is almost half over. Will you leave it up for a while?


  4. Was most impressed with the transition to the slow aria "My Life." You handled that quite well - especially since you were coming from a very disjointed segment. Nice way to tie all of it together.

    I particularly liked the use of the text 'form' in that it plays well as a text and as a musical idea.


  5. Absolutely wonderful! I give it a five of five! I particularly loved the use of sound effects to convey the proper setting and time element.

    In doing some research on this opera, I believe that the action moves backwards, although you start at his funeral? Did I read this right?

    If that is correct, then that would make this scene (which happens in the obviously start of the action) placed towards the end of the opera and the previous posting ("Museum ...") more towards the beginning?

    I'm not really being that clear, but I think you can get the drift?

    Can you advise?

  6. Wunnerful, wunnerful! Seriously, this is inspiring stuff. I can't decide whether I like the operatic selections the best or the piano recordings.

    Any other combinations coming soon?

    Keep this going!

  7. Fabulous! I want a recording of this opera!


  8. Yeah, Lisa - me too! Seriously beautiful stuff.


  9. No pressure, but did you ever think of 365 for 365 - A piece for each day????

    I find I need to come and listen more than once a day. And I am not a huge opera fan.
