4.0 out of 5 stars Berliozs best aria!, 19 May 2013
For me the pearl in the huge piece is one of the greatest arias ever written, D'amour l'ardente flamme sung stunningly by Dame Janet Baker, Gedda for me as usual to dry of voice, where's the sap.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite opera., 23 Mar. 2013
My favourite opera, bought originally on vinyl, now on CD only because I'm the biggest ever Janet Baker fan. Love the music and Bellini's wonderful orchestrations, especially the woodwind solo's. Gedda sounds tired and Sills a little past her best but Dame Janet,s voice has never sounded so beautiful, her interpretation as the young Romeo is peerless. Great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best vocal performance from a musical on record, 21 Jan. 2012
When this album came out it bowled me over, the orchestrations are fantastic, love Banderous, Jimmy Nail don't like, but Madonna. I think it's the best vocal performance of any musical ever. The way she sings and uses the English language, hardly any American inflections is awesome, and Evita has a huge vocal range. Hope she'll do Sunset in 10 years time.
