Don Carlo: Salzburg Festival (Pappano) [DVD] [2014]
Don Carlo: Salzburg Festival (Pappano) [DVD] [2014]
Dvd ~ Peter Stein
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Don Carlo CD, 4 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite some criticisms at the time of the performance, this production is the best "Don Carlo" in a decade or two, at least. The duet of Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros in Act V is really beautiful and incomparable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Achievement, 4 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's Me (Audio CD)
I already have the four CDs separately, but it is wonderful to have the 51 arias in one set to see (hear) what Jonas Kaufmann has achieved in his 20 years as a professional opera singer and on his 45th birthday!

4.0 out of 5 stars Young Jonas Kaufmann, 23 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This must have been the first recording Jonas Kaufmann did in his career. However, everything he has shown is already present--his beautiful voice, musicality, and convincing interpretation of the character. Quite enjoyable!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting recording of young Jonas Kaufmann, 6 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Those of you who are interested in Jonas Kaufmann, this recording must be quite interesting. You can enjoy fully his young, high and beautiful voice, which is now replaced by his mature strong voice, However, the piece itself is quite flat and simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime!, 6 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best recording of Verdi's Requiem. The four soloists are just superb! Also, Daniel Barenboim's understanding and interpretation of the piece are clearly conveyed to the orchestra and the choir and they come up to his expectation. It is really a wonderful DVD and I do highly recommend it to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but not Sublime, 6 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sacred Verdi (Audio CD)
After the superb Requiem, this recording is a bit disappointing. This is mostly due to the soloists whose singing is not of the highest quality,
