Format: Audio CD
This is the 2010 reissue of the 1972 magnificent studio recording of the French version (the one actually edited by the composer himself) of the last Rossini's opera.
"Guillaume Tell" is here presented in a quite complete version (4 CDs containing nearly four hours of wonderful music), therefore gaining in narrative breath and balance.

The great Gabriel Bacquier (b. 1924) is a convincing Guillaume, rendered through a round and generous heroic vocality, but, at the same time, able to convey a moving lyricism, as in the heart rending scene which precedes the well known episode of the apple.

A really top level couple of artists - Montserrat Caballé (b. 1933), as Mathilde, and Nicolai Gedda (b. 1925), as Arnoldo, - gives us solos and duets where virtuosic bel canto and interpretative deepness perfectly merge for a pleasant listening and an intense emotional involvement.

Mady Mesplé (b. 1931), one of the best famed French "soprano di coloratura", convincingly renders the combative personality, joined to the childish tenderness, of Jemmy, Guillaume's young son, giving us some very enjoyable bel canto moments.

Jocelyne Taillon (1941-2004) - a pupil of the great Germaine Lubin (1890-1979) - is an excellent Edwige (Guillaume's wife and Jemmy's mother) in rendering her continuos and deep apprehension for her beloved relatives' destiny, courageously hidden under the dignity suited to a leader's wife.

This outstanding group of Stars is then appropriately supported by a powerful and solid team of basses - with voices of other times.
A young Kolos Kovacs (b. 1948), even if his French pronunciation is not so refined, is a powerful Walter; Gwynne Howell (b.

This set gets an enthusiastic endorsement from me in three senses. First, the sheer quality of the participants' work, including the sound-engineering as well as the singing and playing, is kept at a high and consistent level through nearly 4 hours of opera. Secondly, this is a true team effort, not least because the skill in the team selection would win the admiration of Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and other such master practitioners. Not least do I recommend the set for giving us the work as Rossini conceived it, something that may still be unique among recorded versions.

First impressions count, and my first impression was of a sense of space and air in the sound round the orchestra. How much of this was achieved during the initial recording in the early 70's and how much is modernised sound I have no way of knowing and fortunately no need to know either. One way or another the sound serves the artists to something like perfection throughout. The soloists are well balanced against the orchestra, there is never a hint of distortion on high notes, but I congratulate the technicians most of all on their handling of the choruses. We can hear the alertness and clean diction in the semi-choruses, and the enunciation remains remarkably distinct even when the sound is built up to the great imposing climaxes at the end of the third and fourth acts. I mentioned quality, and the technical quality reflects a really remarkable consistency among the singers themselves. In a production this long I would normally take for granted (and normally get) at least some minor lapses in intonation, but if there are any here I have missed them after three complete hearings.
