As a huge Leontyne Price fan I had to buy this when I saw it. I have the Karajan recording which is just fantastic (and in my opinion better than the de Sabbata/Callas - sacrilegeous I know!) So, the recording quality is ok. The coughers are quite irritating but Price is in glorious voice. However, I find Corelli just too bombastic and egotistical to listen to. I've never heard 'Recondita Armonia' shouted before. He holds notes way too long to the point of distraction. This is a man who is clearly just showing off. Shame, because his voice is fantastic but I can't bear that amount of selfish mugging. Sadly, not a recording I'll be able to revisit often.
