Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Leo Delibes – Lakmé (Sutherland)

front_small_boxset
Complete new rip, with the new cart and the new phono amp…and “finalmente” in 24/96

Sutherland’s famed diction is much better in French than Italian. She is breath-taking as Lakme. What a vocal wonder! The bell song is “Inhuman”, it’s so awesome. Spectacular high E’s shot out the diva’s mouth like cannonballs, ravishing trills on high B. No one can trill like Sutherland, and she’s the only soprano in history who could trill on a high D-flat.

Yes, most of the major roles were taken by singers who at the time must count as “experienced”, but there is plenty of youthful vigor in the singing as well.

Phantastic sound and stellar performances…and this is the reason, why I offer this jewel in 24/96 although it is a digital production.
