HD-Vinyls 24/96 (RCA) Mario Lanza Sings Caruso Favorites

front-small-boxsetFor Bob
By 1958 Lanza’s lirico spinto tenor had darkened significantly, acquiring a baritonal richness in its middle and lower registers, while still retaining the celebrated top notes for which he was justly famous. On his best days, he was also a more sensitive singer than he had sometimes been in his Hollywood period.
Mario’s singing is generally excellent, especially when you take into account he was to die so soon after recording this.
All the tracks are in stereo, but all is not well with their sound. All the Mario Living Stereo recordings seem to suffer from distortion and edgy sound particularly with Mario’s voice when he sings loudly, which is quite often.

Mono HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Supraphon) Enrico Caruso – Operatic Arias And Songs

If one has ever needed the evidence, that Caruso was (and will be forever) the greatest opera singer of all times, so please, here it is. What a voice, what a pity, that we will never know, how this terrific voice would have sounded, if captured with the modern technics of our days. Fine transfer of the around 100 years old recordings into mono vinyl. Compliments, Supraphon, I can say, I never heard Caruso in a better way.
