Revisited, with the newest toys and in 24/192 Sutherland’s famed diction is much better in French than Italian. She is breath-taking as Lakme. What a vocal wonder! The bell song is “Inhuman”, it’s so awesome. Spectacular high E’s shot out the diva’s mouth like cannonballs, ravishing trills on high B. No one can trill like Sutherland, and she’s the only soprano in history who could trill on a high D-flat.

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”.
