I don’t think I have heard any performances more beautiful than this. On sheer beauty nobody compares to Baumgartner.
Thank you very much, Andy, for these remarkable performances

Super HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Angel) Charles Gounod – Roméo et Juliette (Freni/Corelli)

front-small-boxset
Thanks to a friend, I can offer you the possibility to compare (sonically) my UK EMI 1st edition with this US Angel 1st edition
This is maybe the best possible tragic-love story by Shakespeare you will ever listen to. Young Mirella Freni and Franco Corelli (oh, what a dream-team) weep all doubts away. When you have listened to the grandious sounding opening sequence of this opera, you’ll be sure: this is the best “Romeo and Juliet” on earth.

Almost no post-processing, so you can say, this rip is raw…and has a better DR (12)
Brand new vinyl, played here for the 1st time
Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the mother of all „Pictures“ recordings. At today, no other „Pictures“ production was able to beat Maestro Reiner and his Chicago Symphony Orchestra: good speed, real dramatical atmosphere, perfect tempo and a magnificent sound. This Analogue Productions Reissue on 200g is the best sounding version I ever heard.

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Decca) Umberto Giordano – Fedora (Olivero/Del Monaco/Gobbi)

Reposted, now with FF links

This is one of the most dramatic operas you will ever hear…and, sadly, one of the most unseen on stage. When you hear  Olivero & Del Monaco you can clearly understand, why….Who the hell could sing, today, like them? But when sung by a mature soprano like Magda Olivero this music can be electrifying. There is much in this piece that qualifies it as a masterwork. It was once popular but has faded somewhat. It needs to return soon to opera lovers’ hearts.

Reup because of Magda’s death.
The Italian soprano Magda Olivero, one of the most prominent interpreters of the Italian verismo operatic tradition whose career spanned 50 years, has died at 104.
The news agency ANSA said Olivero died Monday, Sept. 8th 2014 in a Milan hospital, where she was admitted after a stroke last month.
The Milan opera house La Scala, where Olivero debuted in 1938, honored her memory with a moment of silence before a performance on Monday. La Scala described Olivero’s voice as charismatic, her acting as formidable and her intelligence as “ready and cutting until the end”.
Olivero took a break from performing after her 1941 marriage, returning to the stage in 1958 in the title role of Adriana Lecouvreur at the urging of the opera’s composer Francesco Cilea. It became one of her most memorable roles.
