I enjoyed this concert. Both artists are charismatic singers at the height of their careers.
However, I have 2 minor criticisms. Firstly, much as I enjoy Mozart's Marriage of Figaro I would have happily sacrificed some of these tracks in order to achieve a better programme balance. I loved the Donizetti 'Come sen va contento from L'elisir d'amore but this one aria seems a tad mean when compared to the 4 tracks from Figaro - one of which includes its Overture. Half of the concert is Mozart!
My second criticism concerns the audio and video quality. Opus Arte has set itself such high standards on its overall catalogue that any slight deviation is bound to attract comment. Don't get me wrong, this disc is good quality with a sharp picture and very pleasing sound. However, in my view the quality is not quite up there with the best. The video quality is probably limited by the lighting used at Glyndebourne on the night. In other words we are probably seeing more or less what the audience saw. Unfortunately, the video quality does not sparkle and the 'wow' factor that is present on most blu-ray concerts is missing. There are 2 sound track options and ordinarily I would opt for the PCM 5.1. However, on this disc I preferred the Stereo PCM 2.0 mix which I felt gives a better balance between the singers and the orchestra.
A thoroughly enjoyable disc, nonetheless, which I would thoroughly recommend.
