Great Music - Awful Recording
on 24 April 2009
Like my fellow reviewer, I love this record. I grew up listening to my Dad's old vinyl LP - my introduction to the world of classical music, if you like. I've since loved the original opera: got the music; seen it live etc etc
So it was with anticipation that I awaited re-acquaintance with a childhood favourite....
It's still a great take on a classic but the recording quality is decidedly medium wave (no top end, no bottom end, and the rest is distorted). I've heard better renderings of old wax - is this the best they could do with the master acetate?
