5.0 out of 5 stars Blows your mind. 14 Jan 2013
By Everard
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A lovely recording of highlights, ideal for the car and those of us without the patience to listen to the full opera. Puccini at his best and Domingo in great form, slightly more mellow than Pavarotti in Nessun Dorma.

By Bacchus TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have really enjoyed listening to a complete set of Karajan's 1982 rendition of Turandot. I reviewed it very favourably Puccini: Turandot and my review became a cause of a great deal of debate.

I recently acquired this recording of highlights from that recording and enjoyed once again sampling this wonderful recording. Whatever misgivings listeners might have over Katia Ricciarelli's lyrical portrayal of the title role with it almost inhuman demands on the voice, I think it is lovely to hear. Domingo sings heroically and Barbara Hendricks sings exquisitely. You get super examples of all this on this particular CD.

Unfortunately, I really don't think this is the bast way to hear the opera. It begins in a really illogical part of the work as if randomly chosen. The problem for me is that the work is conceived in big spans, where the repetition and development of motives is more important than individual highlights. In this recording, I felt that Karajan was masterly in his handling of the score. Unfortunately, you don't get a good enough sense of this if you hear just the highlights.

So, while it is churlish to be critical of the samples of something so wonderful, I would urge anyone interested in this opera to get the whole opera rather than this recording of highlights.
