Puccini La Boheme,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Puccini: La Bohème (Audio CD)The obituary of Victoria De Los Angeles in the Independent in January 2005 noted that 'It is impossible to imagine a more purely beautiful voice than that of Victoria de los Angeles at the height of her career in the 1950s and early 1960s'. Add the staggering vocal gifts of Jussi Bjoerling - perhaps unequalled by another tenor since WWII, a superb supporting cast and Beecham's talent, and you have the makings of a very special recording indeed - possibly the best La Boheme yet recorded.
I feel privileged to listen to this performance on CD.
My message is simple: don't delay. Buy it. Enjoy it. Weep with it. Smile with it. This is a truly exceptional performance by some of the most gifted people the musical world has seen and heard.
