4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best recordings, 23 Dec 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rossini: Stabat Mater (Audio CD)
There is no doubt that this is one of the best recordings of the Stabat Mater. The Wiener Philharmoniker under Myung-Whun Chung are magnificent and the 4 soloists fit together and compliment each other very well. Of all the recordings of this work I have never found one that is completely as I would like. In this version Raul Gimenez gives a very creditable rendition of "Cujus animan" but it is not quite as good as Pavarotti's version in the Decca recording Rossini: Stabat Mater However the conducting of the Pavarotti version by Kertész is poor by comparison to this version. If I could only choose one recording it would be this one.
