Despite some glaring flaws, one of La Scala's best live recordings 8 Sept. 2008
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This production of Verdi's best early opera, Ernani, opened the La Scala season in 1982, and much of it is thrilling. Muti drives too hard at times, but rubato had entered his vocabulary by then, and the absence of subtlety isn't such a great loss in a score that's so visceral and propulsive. Ernani could be a singing contest, so evenly divided are the arias and ensembles. In a live recording such as this, one can't expect perfection -- or anything close -- but the four principals, all international stars, throw themselves into their roles with abandon. No wonder critics at the time called this the best Verdi singing in twenty years.

All of that is to the good, as is the recorded sound (stage and audience noises are minimal); orchetral discipline, while not on the level of the Met orchestra, is fine. Muti is nothing if not a disciplinarian. But there are some undeniable flaws, mostly to do with age. Bass Nicolai Ghiaurov as Don Carlo was a decade past his prime, rusty, woolly, and wobbly of voice -- not a pleasure to listen to despite his commanding dramatic presene. His wife in real life, the great Mirella Freni, was in the middle of her misbegotten crusade to sound twice as large as her voice really was, and she makes a hash of Donna Elvira's signature aria, 'Ernani, Ernani,' in Act I -- Leontyne Price's famous RCA version will never be effaced. Elsewhere, Freni sings with commitment and passion. As Don Carlo, Renato Bruson was widely praised for his musicianship, but I can't hear why: he is monotonously loud and unvarying in tone, and for me personally, his voice is intrinsically dry and unpleasant.

Which leaves Domingo in the title role of the bandit-nobleman, and he has a triumph. The mark of a great singer is attention to detail in live performances, where the temptation is to shout and strut. Domingo's singing is a model of vibrancy, excitement, and musical finesse. The Gramophone called this his best recording to date, and it's hard to disagree. In all, there is no ideal recording of Ernani, so unless you are fanatical enough to buy three different versions to hear Pavarotti, Sutherland, Price, Bergonzi, and the singers here, this riveting live reading serves well as a one-and-only.

Verdi's Ernani 22 Dec. 2012
By Pirooz Aghssa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just downloaded this recording and even though I am familiar with a number of other (older) recordings, I really liked this one. To me Muti's conducting has a romantic quality to it which I find very appropriate for an opera based on a Victor Hugo play that has the reputation of dismantling neoclassical rules of dramatic writing. I think Muti brings a gravitas to the score. He makes the opera sound like a later Verdi opera. Mirella Freni sings a role that may have been unusual for her but she is such a tremendous artist that she brings integrity to whatever she does. Domingo is in top form. I also love Renato Bruson who always brings to his singing the color and power that Verdi required but he mixes that with humanity and vulnerability of the character. Nicolai Ghiaurov was a wonderful bass and his performance here is very powerful and effective. I like the point of view of this recording. One may disagree with that point of view but to me it is better to have one than not.

An older recording - although not a spectacular recording technique, a good performance. I wished there existed better recordings than this one from this beautiful piece of music.
