Format: Audio CD
Don Carlo is here presented in the full 5 Act Italian version and this performance is under the inspired direction of Carlo Maria Giulini who had celebrated the 'new' Covent Garden centenary with this opera in 1958. The cast then was different, but the Royal Opera Orchestra and Chorus remain, and they're on cracking form. This cast is a collection of megastars of the time (recorded in 1970), mostly at full throttle and very impressive indeed, mostly. Milnes as Posa is wonderfully impassioned and Italianate, and Shirley Verrett as Eboli gobbles up the scenery - tremendously exciting. I'm less convinced by Domingo's Carlo, much as I love him usually: here he seems strained throughout. Caballe produces the trademark pianissimi to lovely effect, but otherwise I find her engagement with the role of Elisabetta less than fully committed - a little pale and unimaginative.

The auto da fe scene is gloriously dramatic and red-blooded and the orchestra are thrillingly resonant. Giulini really has the measure of this difficult score, which can tend towards patchiness in terms of dramatic cohesiveness. Here, however, we are in the hands of a master who has the music in his bones. I would have gone for 5 stars but for the reservations above. Sound-wise, you need have no qualms about the recording date: it's as brilliant and sonorous as anything they can do today.

Format: Audio CD
I had problems choosing which recording of this opera I should buy. The Abbado studio (French), the Abbado live, the Karajan studio, the Karajan live, the Solti.
There are good arguments for all of them - Carreras and Baltsa in the Karajan studio, Siepi in the Karajan live, Valentini and the two basses (in best shape and roles) in the Abbado studio, Nesterenko and Price in the Abbado live, Solti in the Solti. (The Solti goes away because of the singers, especially Fischer-Dieskau being plain wrong.)

But fate made me end up with the Giulini. Here I have a Domingo in one of his best roles, a Milnes that is ideal (next to Bastianini) as Posa, a Caballe that has one of the most beautiful voices ever, a Verrett that is full of blood. And some great orchestra playing from the Covent Garden orchestra. And I get Giulini. OK, his tempi are really slow, but the drama he creates! Not a dull moment during five acts.

Have any of you listened to the underrated Solti from the mid-1960s recently? That was my first Don Carlo and -despite this marvellous set- remains my favourite.

Giulini is tremendous, getting deeper into the music...but so is Solti in his eager, in-your-face way. Bergonzi gives one of his best performances here (did he do it on stage? I don't think so), beating (the excellent and imaginative) Domingo hollow. Tebaldi sounds a bit mature for Elizabeth...but so does Caballe; both are good but not the best (try Mattila in Pappano's French version). Fischer-Dieskau yields to Milnes in Italianate ardour, but presents a most interesting character, a Posa who is perhaps closer to Schiller (not that that particularly matters!) Bumbry and Verrett are both terrific; B. more of the Verdian I'll-show-you-that-the-mezzo-role-is-just-as-good-as-the-soprano type; V. softer-grained but also very assertive. Where the Solti really surges ahead is in the casting of the two basses: Ghiaurov having more of the measure of all facets of the role, where the impressive Raimondi is merely fearsome. And Talvela is just the best Inquisitor around! Poor, competent but unimaginative Foiani cannot hold a candle to him!

Try out the Solti; it's excellent...but don't listen to Talvela and Ghiaurov late at night; you'll be dreaming of the Inquisition!

This beatiful recording has been excellently remastered. Considered by many to be the finest recording of this opera (albeit in Italian rather than French) is a great opportunity to hear a fantastic line-up of singers at their best. It also includes a full booklet of notes and the libretto. A recording to savour.
