Verdi like never sung before!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Verdi (Audio CD)
I bought this CD's deluxe edition, in order to celebrate the 200th anniversay of Verdi's birth. I was captivated! My favorite tracks were from ''I Vespri Siciliani'', where Netrebko's voice and maestro's conducting were inspiring and atmospheric. Additionally the tracks from ''Giovanna d' Arco'' are sung in such a beautiful way that it hypnotizes you! I would also recommend ''D' amor sull' ali rose'' from ''Il Trovatore'' and ''Tu che la vanita'' from ''Don Carlo''. Now on Netrebko's Lady Macbeth; all the tracks were sung with an awesome velvet tone, except for the sleep-walking scene (which needs an otherwordly sound anyway).Also, don't miss the chance to have a look at the wonderfully designed, colored booklet which comes with the deluxe edition. Finally spend a delightful hour watching the DVD with highlights from Netrebko's ten-year collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon. In conclusion this is a must-have for every Verdi fan. Don't miss it!
