This disc shows why Kraus should be missed very much. 16 Dec 1999
By Tracy L. Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Alfredo Kraus isn't known as having a particularly beautiful voice. Instead he is singled out as being elegant. He is indeed elegant. Before listening to this disc I never realized how much ring his voice had and yes it is rather beautiful. Most if not all of the selections here are from full length recordings. The French selections are outstanding. Its hard to imagine a better interpretation (except for the Fille du Regiment aria- sorry, Pavarotti can't be beat there.) The Traviata cabaletta really sounds flat without the normal (interpolated I guess) ending on a high note. I wondered why Kraus would avoid it, but then I realized the conductor was Muti. The standout selection on this disc is A te, o cara from Puritani. Its absolutely incredible. Unfortunantly, that recording is no longer available at least in the U.S.

Kraus was great - only if you could get hold of his performances in his prime! 9 Feb 2010
By Abert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is a collection of Alfredo Kraus's operatic performances (in studio or live) over a rather long span of time.
For me, Kraus's prime was in the early to mid-1970's, though he was a tenor of exceptionally long performing demise.
I had his early recording of Alfredo with Callas in the 1958 'La Traviata', and his 'Cosi fan Tutte' under Karl Boehm in 1961. The latter has one aria included in this album, as the entire recording was made under EMI.
Included in this collection is a rather late (when Kraus was past his 59th birthday) live performance of Donizetti's 'La Fille du Regiment' in France. Whoever claims that Kraus was not on par with Pavarotti (or Juan Diego Florez) in the role of Tonio has sadly forgotten that Pav never performed Tonio again since his mid-forties, and Florez has not yet reached 40.
If you compare Kraus with JDF, the main difference appears to be the ability to maintain the legato line even when moving rapidly from mid to low registers to the highest notes. For the voice student, I would recommend Kraus's technique to Florez's.
As for the claim of Kraus not owning a 'very' beautiful instrument, again, I'd urge the listener to dig up some of Kraus's earlier performances in the early 1970's. He definitely had a more beautiful voice than Florez! Only that his major legacy recorded by EMI caught him well past his prime.
