5.0 out of 5 stars A fine performance by fine artists, 6 May 2011
This review is from: Verdi: Il Trovatore (Audio CD)
Disclaimer: Taste is subjective. For twenty years now I have been enjoying Verdi's music as presented in this set. The voices are matchless -especially Pavarotti-, the orchestra is... well, the National Philharmonic. Maestro Bonynge is an opera conductor par excellence. The remastered 1977 recording is flawless, as you could expect from a Decca 1986 release. The sound is absolutely great. This said, I must admit that I love opera, but I am not so deep into it as to say I am a connoisseur of specific voices for specific roles - I just enjoy very much a good performance and a wonderful recording. In my opinion, this is all about even for the most demanding music-lover. And I happen to be one of them - an incorrigible collector of recordings and a non-professional pianist. All in all, I would recommend this set of Il Trovatore to all music-lovers. This is great value for your money and an enormous pleasure for your ears. Try a used copy if it reads 'currently unavailable'.
