SINGERS FROM A GOLDEN AGE,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 100 Hits - Opera (Audio CD)
100 Opera Hits is excellent value for money in that it gives the opportunity to hear some of the great singers from the post-war years and shows up the rather over-praised moderns. On the tenor front there is plenty of the incomparable Jussi Bjorling, fine examples of the quality of the early Di Stefano, Mario del Monaco , the wonderful Carlo Bergonzi and the rather wayward but thrilling, Mario Lanza. Add the sopranos Renata Tebaldi, Callas, Victoria De los Angeles and Sena Jurinac plus some of the leading baritones such as Robert Merill and Tito Gobbi and you have a wide selection to enjoy. There are a few tracks from some who might be called good second raters but , all-in-all, a selection well worth having.
