12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Ralph Moore TOP 50 REVIEWER on 21 Dec. 2010
Format: Audio CD
The obvious comparison to be made with this recording is with the earlier version starring Pavarotti, also on Decca and conducted by Gandolfi. However, the latter uses the original arrangement for keyboard accompaniment only, whereas Chailly here opts for the orchestral treatment. In a sense, therefore, setting these two all-Italian sets side by side is a case of comparing apples with oranges when such different, initial artistic performance choices have been made.

Furthermore, a previous Amazon uk reviewer is quite right about one serious blot in the "Sanctus" of the "Petite Messe" by Gandolfi; sung a capella, and thus without instrumental anchoring, it is dragged down a semitone by Raimondi's miss-pitching his entrance only to end in B not C; amazing that no-one picked it up and ensured a re-take. Raimondi's contribution is generally not an asset; he is in lugubrious voice, lots of sliding and groaning, and Michele Pertusi's cleaner singing in this later Chailly version is to be preferred. Otherwise the Gandolfi account has quite a lot going for it, not least the beautiful contributions of the other three celebrated soloists, especially Pavarotti, who is in sweet, delicate voice and overdoes nothing. Freni is as good as ever - more refulgent than Chailly's Dessi, who is nonetheless excellent - and Lucia Valentini-Terrani is certainly more secure, vibrant and expressive than the adequate Gloria Scalchi for Chailly; this is especially noticeable in the concluding Agnus Dei, where her gravitas is matched by the far more spare accompaniment of Leone Magiera's piano and the eerie commentary by the harmonium; they are far more appropriate to a mood suggested by the ominous substitution of "dona nobis pacem" for "miserere nobis" in response to the first two "Agnus Dei" sections.

You ask about the service for a recent book. I haven't yet opened the parcels yet and as I ordered five books, I don't even know if its arrived. I expect it has as the service is excellent but I wish Amazon would pay some more Corporation tax. This latter might influence my purchasing decisions one day. Level playing field and all that. I might be in error but I won't acknowledge it if I am!

Is it possible to erase Andre Rieu off my list. I can't stand him and only bought the albums for a present. Every time you use as a future guide, I cringe.
