  1. Mr. whatever, are you certain Rachmaniniv didn’t help you on this one; or do have the same equipment he does?

    This 1968-69 recording of Anna Bolena sounds like an Audiophile CD. The orchestra is so “roomy” and crisp and clear; it’s fantastic.
    So this is a Double Good deal: I’ve been looking for this recording for years. I failed to get it when it came out in 1969-70; and it sounds great.

    Thank you very much.
    Bob

  2. Sorry I mispelled Rachmaninov’s name.
    I meant to comment on the singers as well. Horne and Ghiaurov have the voices to keep up with this opera;
    Suliotis has a partially pleasant voice, but this thing is too big for her instrument. Often sounds straining.
    Alexander is barely OK. Shouts himself out of tune on the very high notes, This opera is too big for his instrument as well.
    And besides all that, I ENJOYED LISTENING TO IT!
    THANKS AGAIN.

    BOB

  3. As a late admirer of late Souliotis, many thanks!!!! Agree with Bob that Horne and Ghiaurov are in their element and as always a great pleasure to hear, the others slightly out of it. Having said that, Souliotis was never uninteresting…
