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

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”.

High-Definition Vinyls 96K-24B (EMI/Angel) Giacomo Puccini – Turandot (Nilsson/Corelli)

Complete new rip, with the new engines – many thanks to a friend from the Lake Michigan for this precious box-set
At the Met, in the mid 60’s, she was the reigning Turandot. She sang opposite dramatic tenor Franco Corelli in productions which became legendary and were always sold out. This recording provides us with a glimpse of what it must have been like at that point in time. Corelli and Nilsson are the power behind this splendid album.
