Revisited with the benefit of Audio Research SP15 and in 24/192.
This is in my eyes (and ears) one of the few cases where the MFSL version is devasting better than the original.

HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Decca) Giacomo Puccini – Turandot (Sutherland/Pavarotti)

front-small-boxset
This is not the rip from 2010 and not from 2012 but a complete new rip (Oct. 2015) in 24/192
This is the best „Turandot“ you can find in this world, my friends. Maestro Mehta and the fabulous dream-team Sutherland/Pavarotti are not of this galaxy. Add the great and wonderful voice of Ghiaurov and an angelic Caballè, perfect choir, a speedy drive, perfect tempi and intonations….i could continue ’til Xmas……not at last the stunning audiophile sound.
You‘ll never find a better „Turandot“ – Sutherland was ideal for roles like the cruel chinese princess and Pavarotti was born only for the role of Calaf. Finally, Maestro Mehta was born only to create this “work of the century”.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Angel/EMI) Pietro Mascagni – L‘amico Fritz (Freni/Pavarotti)

front-small-boxset
The best Pavarotti recording ever !
If you want to enjoy in Pavarotti’s great talent, don’t look any further. In this great opera Pavarotti shows why he became one of the greatest singers of the 20th century. But to put it this way would be unjust towards all the other musicians that contributed to this fabolous recording. All, without exception, are inspired. Probably thanks to the electrifying presence of Gavazzeni, the gifted although not so famous director. It must be him, I don’t see any other way that every single musician could bring out the best in him or her for this recording. This recording truly deserves EMIs title of “Greatest Recordings of the Century”.
