5.0 out of 5 stars A classic dark hued reading
I see that there are other positive reviews of this remarkable recording in its originals reincarnation on this site but this is the cd version I own and much as I value the classic Gobi, Callas, di Stefano, Serafin reading, as well as the celebrated Sutherland, milnes, Pavarotti and the digital sinopoli reading with Bruson, this Giulini reading is highly distinctive and...

1.0 out of 5 stars Non-appearance of Rigoletto
Hard to review without hearing it. Have been promised a replacement as the first cd seems to have gone missing, but the second one seems to have followed suit. After 11/2 months all I've received has been the bill. I'd say that's a bit unfair

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic dark hued reading, 15 Feb 2014
This review is from: Verdi: Rigoletto (Audio CD)
I see that there are other positive reviews of this remarkable recording in its originals reincarnation on this site but this is the cd version I own and much as I value the classic Gobi, Callas, di Stefano, Serafin reading, as well as the celebrated Sutherland, milnes, Pavarotti and the digital sinopoli reading with Bruson, this Giulini reading is highly distinctive and all of the soloists bring this performance to life. Capucilli is moving, investing the character with a true sense of pathos, Domingo is superb as the carefree duke, Cotrubas sounds a little too closely miked and yet this is a very minor quibble in an interpretation in which she provides one of the most convincing Gilda's on record. Hers is not the most beautiful voice in comparison to many other recordings but it possesses dramatic integrity. the sound balance between orchestra and voices is not ideal in several respects but this is a very minor blemish in a set which remains one of my desert island discs.
