5.0 out of 5 stars definitive version 1 Mar 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I grew up with this version so am biased: it is inevitably the benchmark against which all others are measured. I still return to it time after time only to be amazed by its clarity of sound and the terrifying performances. Birgit Nilsson presents not an Elektra out of control but all the scarier for never once losing it. Resnik is chilling and horribly intimate (& her screams are unsurpassed) ; Collier is desperate and vulnerable; Krause a youthful baritone but necessarily lacking the presence of the women. Pacing and attention to orchestral detail under Solti serve the monumental architecture of the whole. One of the very great performances available to us.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great interpretation but MP3 version flawed. 21 Nov 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Like some other reviewers I have always rated the Solti ' Elektra ' as the best in the catalogue. That remains my view but I have to express disappointment in the poor quality of the MP3 transfers. Amazon opera downloads are usually excellent ; the gapless playback tends to work. Not with this recording, I'm afraid. There are noticeable gaps in many of the track breaks, enough to spoil this listener's enjoyment. Admittedly, many of the transitions are awkward but I expected better. Perhaps what Amazon has achieved here is as good as one gets with the MP3 format, in which case can I suggest you start offering lossless formats ( FLAC and Apple Lossless) I would have been happy to pay a little more for the opportunity to listen to this great music without irritating gaps every few minutes. Lossless is the way forward, certainly for opera.
