5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best! 26 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this set because I have owned it for a long time having first purchased it on vinyl LP. I have heard many versions of Traviata and in my view this recording was the best, and despite recent excellent competition it remains so. Ileana Cotrubas sings Violetta perfectly. Her portrayal is spellbinding throughout and in my opinion cannot be surpassed.

As ever, Domingo and Sherrill Milnes sing superbly, and Carlos Kleiber's conducting gets the very best out of Verdi's score.

This is a performance I have returned to again and again over the years. I knew that eventually I would have to buy it on CD and I have no regrets. Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best. 29 April 2010
By IevaB
Format:Audio CD
I've had this recording on a cassette tape for over 12 years now and obviously it's time for me to update to a CD. But I can honestly say this is one of the best versions of La Traviata I've heard. Probably the best. The emotions permeate the singing, it really touches the heart. Would definately recommend as the ultimate version of this timeless opera.

This verdi masterpiece has been recorded by many artists.Without waisting time lets get on it, Contrubas,the choice of La Traviata is greatly defined by the soprano voice and mostly Act 1 'simpre libera" & Contrubus is not afraid to hit the high notes but what she has is that she has a more controlled voice, her diction of words is clear enough, perhaps personally I would not rate her as the best Violetta but certainly one of the better voices.To me the best Violetta is Victoria De los Angelos with Serafin -EMI even though she is happiest after the taxing Act 1.Now Alfredo, Placido Domingo sings with great artistry, young and ardent man in love with a Violetta.Once again the choice is defined by the suitable Alfredo and Domingo suits the part very well, his "felice ......." "romorse infamous...." "o parigi o cara' excellent all the way. To me nothing is as touching deep down than the infamous selfserving Germont Pere sung by the incredible Sherril Milnes, his "pure angelo ....'is excellent especially when he tells Violetta that one day your beauty will fade....you are young and beautiful ....allow Alfredo to be with his family.....etc but my favourate part is "Di Provenza.....aria, for some reason I dont know why CD compilations ignore this aria,there is a lot of "Libiamo....." already. the last Act is done magnificently. Why then 4 stars? I guess it is the accent of Cotrubas as Violetta, she is not Italian enough for me personally. Well, who is at the top of the list? Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars La Traviata 9 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have really enjoyed this CD and the sound is so much better than either of the Callas versions. The critics also seem to be impressed and I believe this regularly gets rated as the best version on CD

5.0 out of 5 stars A true benchmark 22 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
La Traviata is one of my favourite operas. It has everything that an opera lover could wish for.
This set provides a level of performance that would be difficult to surpass. Carlos Kleiber was
one of the greatest conductors of the last century; unfortunately his recording legacy was rather
limited. Grab this set, no matter how many other versions of La Traviata you have, and enjoy every
minute of this truly benchmark performance.

I recently saw a production of La Traviata at the Wales Millenium Centre. This recording was recommended in the programme and I bought it straight away.
It really is a wonderful production - buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not quite achieve greatness 5 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
Cotrubas is easily categorised: Callas without the genius. The voice is far too closely miked so that every breath is clearly audible. Domingo is a good musician, but his portrait lacks variety and vocal 'heft'. Kleiber favours quick tempi and keeps the whole thing moving. If you want a good quality recording, you won't go far wrong with this one. If you don't mind a poor quality recording because of the genius of the Prima Donna, go for the 1955 live performance with Callas as the fated artisan with Giulini conducting the La Scala forces: it will come as a revelation.

This is an intensely heartbreaking version and Cotrubas's voice seems to carry within it the pain, hope, despair and love that Violetta feels. Read more
