I love it

I wrote a review of this CD set (not a very good review) and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be posted. I hope not. This one is better, as though either were good. I had Gruberova singing this opera, but with all her facility and the beauty of her voice, I just couldn’t take her sliding up to the last high notes instead of jumping (which she could have done), and then flipping them off with insoucience. I suppose this is her trademark. I don’t like it. I finally replaced her Linda with this wonderful one. It is a studio recording, good clear sound, as one reviewer noted, it is hardly second-rate Donizetti, and the soprano’s voice and acrobatics are flawless, beautiful and perfect. This set costs only a little over $30 + shipping and has 3 discs in it. Donizetti (who lived to be 51) was prolific, turning out something like 73 or 76 operas. I have dozens. He has been praised and vilified (I’d say maligned). He’s been called everything from a consummate genius to (this from a popular book on opera by Matthew Boyden) a producer of spaghetti, that he goes down easy but there’s nothing there. (This writer, incidentally, a cocky cad of the first water, threw Donizetti’s own humility and modesty back in his face as though they proved his (the writer’s) point. Donizetti wasn’t the only musician to be cruelly and foolishly trounced.) But Donizetti doesn’t need my ignorant defense. The music (like on this set) speaks for itself.
