Many many thanks to a benefactor from Lake Michigan for this gift
I get so often criticised for finding faults with singers like Netrebko or Kaufmann. But, seriously, if we haste to call these singers great, what are we going to do with Leontyne Price and Carlo Bergonzi? Then, they say “you shouldn’t make comparisons”. Well, it is not possible to avoid comparisons. This disc is a model of great Verdi singing and interpretation. I do not think there has been a greater Verdian singer in the recorded history of opera than Leontyne Price. Whether it is Forza, Trovatore, Ernani, Aida the woman knows her business. There is no kidding here. Carlo Bergonzi rises to the challenge 100%. Thomas Schippers left all TOO young. He had SO MUCH to give.
