I am currently expanding this website and include all my purchased recordings. (In fact I am experimenting with import, export and custom posts). So please be patient if you get some weird results during the next few days.

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. 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.

If you are wondering when I am listening to all this, the answer is: while I am traveling and sketching. You can read more about that here.
