Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This performance is my idea of a triumph, although there have to be some reservations about the way Leontyne Price handles the heroine's role. The recording, from 1977 originally, can be praised without any reservation, and I find the booklet perfectly adequate. It does not contain the libretto in full, but it lists the heads of the successive numbers and tells us who is taking part in each. There is also a very good summary of the plot, which is a simple one, and these two features together give me as much detail as I need or want. What I really, really want is the glorious music, and that is given to me as I like it.

Those critics may be right who find Price not on her best form, but I incline to a more sympathetic view that it is more a matter of the interpretation (whether hers or Levine's or a bit of both)applied to the character of Leonora. This Leonora is a gentle creature, unlike certain other Leonoras e.g. in Fidelio. It could well be that Price did not wish, or was not advised, to be unduly assertive. That would certainly be understandable, but it might have been a little unwise all the same. The character of Leonora is central to the plot, but in fact she gets surprisingly little to sing. On the second disc, which is the longest of the three, she takes part in a short number just after the start which she has to share with three monks, and then she is not heard again until the very end of the opera. An interpretation of the part that inclines to the demure side risks letting Domingo and Milnes as Alvaro and Carlo out-sing her and out-act her, which is dangerously near to what happens. A good rule in Verdi is probably - whenever you are in doubt how to go about such-and-such a part always opt for hyperbole. That is just the nature of Verdi's style.

This recording of La Forza is a success. Levine's conducting is superb and all performers are dramatically involved and in a fine voice.. except Price - but by no means does she ruin the show. She was a great singer but here she is merely adequate whereas the other performers are excellent. Price sounds at times inappropriately shrill and harsh. I think she was simply not ideal for this role. Of the singers, praise goes especially to Domingo but also to Milnes and Cossotto.
