4.0 out of 5 stars A fine version, slightly too well behaved 9 July 2009
By Ralph Moore TOP 50 REVIEWER

Despite many critical recommendations, this set has always been somewhat overshadowed by the Abbado recording with Cappuccilli, Verrett, Ghiaurov and Domingo. Both versions feature equally starry casts and conductors, and both convey more than adequately the inspiration of this most faithful of Verdi's Shakespearian adaptations, although this one occasionally seems to place more emphasis on smooth vocalisation than drama. Muti directs briskly, as is his wont in Verdi and both orchestral playing and choral singing is exemplary. Milnes sings beautifully, enunciating the text with passion and clarity, without quite capturing the angst found in Cappuccilli's characterisation, and Raimondi sings a smooth, sonorous Banco. In the relatively small role of Macduff, Carreras really shines, producing one of his most eloquent and arresting performances on disc; better than any other Macduff including Domingo and Bergonzi - both of whom are also terrific. As much as I admire Cossotto, she cannot erase memories of Callas' inimitable depth and power as the Lady; Callas etches certain phrases indelibly on the mind and Cossotto's version can seem perfunctory - not to mention a little squeezed at the top of the voice. Verrett for Abbado inhabits her role more vehemently, as does Rysanek for Leinsdorf in the excellent old RCA recording, which also features the superb Leonard Warren, Jerome Hines and the aforementioned Bergonzi. In truth I cannot really separate these three great recordings, although I still think that the Abbado has the edge. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top three 27 Jun 2013
This is a great recording of Macbeth. Cossotto is overwhelming and Milnes drives through this role like no one else. Raimondi and Carreras fill their roles beautifully - it's all you need to know. If you are a geek, like me, then you'd have this, the Abbado recording with Cappuccilli and the Gardelli Decca with Fischer-Dieskau & Suliotis - but if you only want one, then this is it... or the Abbado, or the Gardelli.... you get the idea...
