Thank you Bob for this historical gift
WOW, my friends….Jussi Björling as Manrico…is this great! I never thought one fine day I would listen to “my” Jussi in this role. My espectations were blown away. Without a doubt, after “THE” Manrico by Super-Mario Del Monaco, this is the most glorious one I have heard. And this in a Live-recording from 1941 (!!!)

HD-Vinyl (Mono) 24/96 (RCA) Giuseppe Verdi – Falstaff Highlights (Arturo Toscanini)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Bob – Georgia on my mind 😀
There have been countless recordings of Verdi’s last opera. Many excellent. For example, von Karajan (with Tito Gobbi), Solti (with Geraint Evans), Bernstein (with Fischer-Dieskau), Giulini (with Renato Bruson), and more recently Davis (with Michele Pertusi). And even an English version, Daniel (with Andrew Shore). And they all have their unique qualities.
However, the benchmark remains Toscanini’s recording in 1950 with the NBC Symphony Orchestra on the RCA label. The cast may not be perfect, although Valdengo offers a first-rate interpretation. He also sang Iago in Toscanini’s 1947 NBC broadcast of Verdi’s Otello. Herva Nelli and Nan Merriman , also in that classic recording, reappear here. All the members of the cast perform admirably, and the ensembles, a crucial ingredient in this opera, are most effective. Cloe Elmo, as Mistress Quickly, is especially notable.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Decca) Mario Del Monaco sings Giuseppe Verdi, Vol. 1 & 2

front-small-boxset
You surely have seen in your life such a situation: when a very important person died, the program on TV was changed or there were some extraordinary documentaries about.
When Mario Del Monaco died in 1982, the world should have stand still for a moment, but nothing happened: no extra docus about him on TV, no changed programs….what a shame. These were the words of my beloved uncle, the greatest fan of Super-Mario, who made of me also a great operatic lover and fan of Del Monaco. So many records of Del Monaco I’ve posted (and still I will post in the near future) are part of his collection, that he wanted me to get, when his time was coming.
Please, enjoy the world greatest opera singer ever!!!!!!!

HD-Vinyl Mono 24/96 (EMI/Seraphim) Giuseppe Verdi – La Forza Del Destino (Callas, Tucker, Serafin)

front-small-boxset
If it were not for Maria Callas, we would all think that La Forza del Destino is essentially a prime exercise and showcase for great soprano voices, with a few goodies thrown in for the rest of the cast and the chorus. In this recording, Callas’s voice is not technically great, though it is usually good. She makes most of her points by other means: close attention to the value of words, subtle nuances of tone and phrasing, an uncompromising determination to confront the emotions in the text and convey them honestly and strongly, even when they reach a terrifying intensity. We have here, under the absurdities of plot, a compelling psychological portrait of a woman driven beyond her limits–a woman whose brother wants to kill her lover, who has killed her father. The supporting cast is skilled and Serafin shapes a powerful interpretation. — Joe McLellan
