5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Oldies, 23 Dec 2011
This review is from: Verdi: La Traviata (MP3 Download)
I can not tell you how much pleasure this recording has given me. Sutherland is superb and Bergonzi magnificant. The pace is measured and used to emphasize the drama. I feel sorry for contemporary singers having to compete with the strength of the back catalogue.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great surprise., 7 Sep 2011
It was a real pleasure to find a (very) budget recording of a real favorite choral piece that was so exciting. The recording is clear and sharp, an the singers although, with the exception of Domingo, not particularly well known, were all superb. A great budget recording.

1.0 out of 5 stars Anachronism, 5 July 2011
I am not a connoisseur of opera but know what I like. This may be the pinnacle of performance for this opera, but to me I found it representative of opera from a bygone age; an age where the ability of opera to express great meaning in our own lives was suppressed by the ridiculousness of its delivery. Sorry, I sent my copy back!
