4.0 out of 5 stars A five star prformance, 22 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rossini: Barber Of Seville 2CDs (Audio CD)
This is a perfect performance with Los Angeles getting exceptional credit from Gramophone mag. I have started to buy opera with native language speakers as they seem to have more fun in interpreting the role. This Barber has Monti and Rossi-Lemeni and Los Angeles is totally at home in the part. Together with Tullio Serafin and the orchestra Sin di Milan it is an Italian production of excitement wit and charm.

My only misgiving is that the CD seems to taken from tapes with slight white noise.The review drops a star for this. Most digital conversions are brighter than normal and take a bit of getting used to. This one is musicly true and I suppose there had to be a trade off. I normally listen on Digital earphones which are too analytical and so catch the low hiss. My high end hifi is a lot better and on reflection I prefer this true transcription to one where the cost of eliminating background noise is an unreal brightness. .
