HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Mario Del Monaco sings Verdi

The Greatest Tenor of Them All. Del Monaco is in wonderful voice here, a voice filled with both Power and Beauty. Just listen and you will hear why Del Monaco is the Tenors Tenor. A force of Nature! This is the most commonly used sentence when someone wants to describe the voice of Mario Del Monaco. Not many tenors can sing those high notes which del Monaco reaches, with such ease!
This selection is a particular fine one, also due to the fact, that here are some of Verdi’s less known operas represented, like Alzira, Aroldo, I Due Foscari, I Lombardi, I Masnadieri.

  1. Del Monaco and the Monte Carlo Band.. a perfect match here!
    Such masterful singing. In Macbeth, he hardly draws a breath!
    The recording here is 1st rate and the MC band sound very full and dynamic.

    Thanks Alf, this is a great introduction to this Maestro 😀
