Somehow, you found the way to my collection of live recordings and radio/television broadcasts. It mainly contains operas but also includes some musicals, theatre productions and radio plays. Nevertheless, the purpose of this site is not to show you which music I like. In fact, it is a sort of general rehearsal for a bigger data project I have in mind. The idea is to use WordPress as a sort of collection management. (You can read more about that on the Documentation page.) I chose this collection because on one side, the quantity of data is manageable – I am a very selective collector – on the other side it provides the opportunity to structure the data output to specific search request like "all works by a certain composer"
I would highly appreciate any kind of question and/or constructive criticism. Please keep in mind that I am neither a programmer nor a database developer. I have a degree in theatre studies and this is only an amateur project.
Preparing the data was like a time travel that took me back to some wonderful moments I spent in opera. Moreover, I discovered that my first recording is from 1986! (I suppose you can call it "antique" by now.) Not to mention the recordings I have not listened to for quite a while. Although the provided data are a means to an end, please feel free to contact me, if you have any questions, wishes, or suggestions.
