That’s not the only crack up line in “The Music Master,” an opera in one act attributed to Giovanni Battista Pergolesi! Jonathan Palevsky was good enough to introduce this hilarious little comedic gem to me and dub it from LP to CD for last Saturday’s Vocalise. The tiny bit of scratchiness made me grateful for the clean sound of CD’s; that would make another good blog topic, but I digress. Here is an article from 1982 written by Edward Rothstein for the New York Times about the “Music Master.” Enjoy!
