4.0 out of 5 stars A great performance, 16 Oct 2010
This review is from: Armida (Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro 1993) (Audio CD)
Armida (Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro 1993)
This is a great performance by Miss Fleming which is what we always expect from her! All the tenors are great too as is the quality of the live recording.
I understand this to be a rarely performed opera due to the difficulty of the singing and the fact that such a large cast is required. However, I would add that as far as the role of Armida is concerned I have never heard anyone sing it with such bravura, passion, ferocity and vocal excelence as a live recording from 1952 with Maria Callas in the title role. I don't know if anyone will ever surpass this show stopping performance with unbelievable vocal acrobatics from Callas in her vocal prime. A recording of this is available for anyone interested but be warned that the sound quality is poor although voices are fairly well to the fore. Nevertheless Miss Fleming's rendition is admirable.
