My favourite composer sung by one of my favourite tenors ( modern ones that is ).I had wondered about the condition of his voice after an operation on his vocal cords. To be truthfull I listened to the MP3 listings on Amazon before buying the cd.I must say his vocal prowess seems as good as ever , He has the Verdi style as well as any other modern tenor ( and better than some I could mention ) with unforced top notes and without bawling or unsteadiness, It is a genuine spinto tenor . Lovely to hear the arie from Oberto & I Due Foscari getting an outing. The young Carreras & Pavarotti come to mind here. 3 songs by Verdi are well sung as is the Ingemisco, but not to be compared with Jussi Bjorlings outstanding performance with Toscanini. O mio rimorso lacks the final B flat but perhaps Verdi didn't write one. Bergonzi sings it in the complete Traviata with Sutherland. The sound is excellent as heard via my B& W's, the orchestra is fine ( As a Torino one should be ) & Noseda provides excellent accompianment. C H T Webb .
