Luigi Nono - Prometeo

Today I get to fill another request, this time for late-period Luigi Nono. I've chosen Ensemble Modern's (out-of-print) performance of Prometeo, a 1984 opera and one of Nono's most famous works. I leave the commentary to people who know what they're talking about (like Stefan Beyst), but I will say this is one my favorite 20th century operas.

Encoded in 320kbps MP3 for your listening pleasure.

I'm trying for hours to download the two parts via megaupload, and... nada... :-(
all the time he tell me that all the slots in use,and i can't dload
those two parts...
maybe you can upload this two parts
with rapidshare, or sendspace?

Sendspace deletes files 7 days after last download. Rapidshare keeps them up for 30 days after last download. It looks like there's not much love for MegaUpload, so I'll stick with Rapidshare in the future (except where impossible due to file size limits).

Downloading from Megaupload worked fine for me. Here's rapidshare links for part 3 and 4 of this piece:

Is there any chance of having this wonderful recording reuploeded? It's really a shame that something so wonderful would be out of print =( So many amazing masterpieces are too! It's ridiculous!

Please and thank you,

- Micah

Hello,
I too only just today discovered your wonderful blog. Thank you for making such ... indispensable music available. I once owned a copy of this Prometo recording but it somehow got misplaced in a move from Europe to the U.S. - now a faint memory of musical sublimity. (Of the 4 files you posted, only 1 - alas - is still alive.) I would like to join the others here who have requested that you repost these files. Thank you in advance. Thank you for all.
My best,
Mark
