5.0 out of 5 stars 'the' Aida 27 May 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I know, there are so many recordings out there. I own many myself and I just happened to buy this one very recently as (I must confess) I used not to be a Tebaldi fan. Well, one must be objective: this Aida is first choice. Karajan's conducting is marvelous as one would expect and the singing is something legendary, like you wouldn't get anywhere nowadays. I am aware that there other Aidas (Leontyne Price is the first to come to my mind for the ravishing beauty of her voice in both of her recordings) but a few others can deliver lines like Tebaldi. Bergonzi is quite possibly the most moving voice of that generation but he also excels in more heroic roles like Radamès. Simionato is a real princess, perhaps lacking Barbieri's aggressiveness and the intensity of Gorr's but she sings with impeccable style. McNeil is probably the best Amonasro on record (hear his 'straziato' in the 3rd Act).
If you don't know this wonderful opera but you wish to have a recording of it, look no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Karajan's earlier 'Aïda' 9 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
Every aspect about this recording is good. It has a fine interpretation by the orchestra and the choir and soloists are very good. The most crucial aspect about this set is Carlo Bergonzi's Radamés. He had a remarkable voice and was one of the greatest Verdi tenors of the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Aida 23 Feb 2010
By David W
Format:Audio CD
This is the 1959 Decca recording of Aida, with Tebaldi, Bergonzi and Simionato with Von Karajan conducting the Vienna Philharmonic. I had the vinyl LP set which got lost in a house move so imagine my delight when I came across this CD version. The sounds faithfully replicate the original LP, with the carefully crafted recording led by John Culshaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fast delivery. 18 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Delivery several days before I expected. Goods well packed and in perfect condition.
Renata Tebaldi must be the greatest Aida ever and with all the major characters, orchestra and
conductor on top form, this must surely be the finest recording of this great opera ever.
So, service as usual from Amazon.
Eric Hulme.
