One of Verdi's over-looked gems,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Verdi: Oberto (Audio CD)
This is a very fine, lively recording of one of Verdi's less well-known operas, which deserves a higher profile. Although it was Verdi's first opera, it has all the aspects which characterise so many of his succeeding, and better known, operas.
Samuel Ramey is, as expected,, in superb voice, as indeed are all the other principals, and Marriner's conducting is brisk and firmly controlled.
If you have not encountered this opera before, I strongly recommend this recording as an excellent introduction.
