HD-Vinyl 24/96 (EMI) Jules Massenet – Manon (Cotrubas, Kraus)

Thank you Bob for this gem
This Manon has long been overshadowed by great recordings with the likes of Beverly Sills, Victoria de Los Angeles, and Angela Gheorghiu as the opera’s title role. Ileana Cotrubas was a Romanian soprano famous for singing lighter roles, most notably a Violetta with Carlos Kleiber on Deutsche Grammophone. Cotrubas probes into Manon like no other and dazzles us with coloratura that the soprano could call her own. She also had an innocent quality about her voice which made her less lusty but more feminine than – for example – Maria Callas. These are the reasons why I like very much this recording of Manon.
