High-Definition Vinyls 96/24 (Decca) Giacomo Puccini – Manon Lescaut (Tebaldi/Del Monaco)

Reposted, now with FF links
This is really a very good recording, one of the best. Renata Tebaldi was a perfect Manon; she could sing as an angel, but also with great passion (Sola, perduta, abbandonata). Mario del Monaco was one of the best Des Grieux’s, perhaps more heroic in some moments, but his voice was always under perfect control. Truly, a “tenore robusto”.

Reposted, now with FF links
Face it. All the best opera recordings were made between the mid 50s and early 70s. Fortunate for us that the final golden age of opera singing coincided with the onset of high fidelity stereo recording. This Fanciulla is a golden age performance.

finally I got it again on vinyl….
One must hear at her “Poveri fiori” as well as her duets (especially the final one) with del Monaco to understand that Tebaldi “owned” the role.

Stop searching for a great „Forza“, my friends. This 1955 recording (Stereo version issued 1959) is the best complete work by Verdi you can find. Still unbeaten after 58 years!
