HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Giuseppe Verdi – Rigoletto (Scotto/Bergonzi/Fischer-Dieskau)

Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Jean-Luc
I guess some people hear what they want to hear. Say “Fischer-Dieskau as Rigoletto” and the initial reaction might be “huh?” But – oh man –  listen to what the man does. Verdi wrote for high baritone, and Fischer-Dieskau’s tenorish quality fits the music perfectly. His tender moments, and there are quite a few in this opera, are meltingly sweet and heart breaking. And don’t tell me he doesn’t have enough power and bite for “Cortigiani, Vil Razza Dannata”!
