Format: Audio CD
I am surprised to find myself recommending this whole-heartedly, even in comparison with the now legendary Gobbi-Callas-Di Stefano set or more recent favourites such as the Milnes-Sutherland-Pavarotti Decca version (not to all tastes, I know), but there are many strong reasons for my advocacy of this rather ancient Cetra recording.

First, the 1954 mono sound has now been immeasurably improved from earlier issues, when it was harsh and strident. It is now clean, with the voices well forward and offers little distortion in climaxes. Then we have the quality of both the singing and the conducting. Angelo Questa presided over many admirable Cetra recordings, including a very recommendable 1956 "Aida" with a young Corelli; here he directs a subtle, unfussy, wholly idiomatic performance with an orchestra and chorus who have the music and language in their blood.

Many collectors and opera buffs will want this recording for both Taddei at his best and Ferruccio Tagliavini, a tenore di grazia, famous for his honeyed mezza voce and head tones who nonetheless had steel in his tone when he needed it. The frequency with which he resorts to those quieter effects might take a modern listener, more used to the Pavarotti approach to this role - all brilliance and verve - a little by surprise - but it is musically and dramatically very effective and perhaps preferable to Di Stefano's more effortful delivery.

Taddei's characterisation is less biting than Gobbi's but richer of voice and just as subtle. He is very moving in his appeal to the courtiers and capable of powerful scorn, too; I love both his and Gobbi's assumptions.

very good recording 4 April 2013
By bob turnley - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Taddei is an excellent Rigoletto and the rest of the cast is very good. Tagliavini had a sound and technique that was quite similar to that of Gigli and his Duke is quite lyrical. Pagliughi makes a very fine Gilda sounding very much in character as the demure daughter. None of these singers attempt any unwritten high notes which is probably for the best since none of them are known for that. The mono sound quality is good for it's age even if the voices are balanced much louder than the orchestra. But this is a Rigoletto that would appeal mostly to fans of Taddei, a great baritone who recorded far too rarely

Poor Quality 3 Feb 2013
By J. Painter - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In addition to a disc that skipped and I can't seem to return. What I saw of it was very violent and confusing.
