5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the rest, 1 Nov 2009
This review is from: Verdi: Aida (Audio CD)
There doesn't seem much I can add to the encomiums already heaped on this disc by earlier reviewers. I have this recording on LP - it was the first opera I bought and it has remained one of the best. Never has Bergonzi been in finer voice or the stalwart Tebaldi more majestic! Supporting them is a vibrant Simionato and all under the superb baton of the old maestro von Karajan, who must surely have dug deep to bring out such fine playing from the VPO. What can one say about the late, great John Culshaw and his engineering team - another maestro! The depth and breadth brought to the staging of this masterpiece defies all efforts to find a fitting superlative. Surely the definitive recording - look no further.
