5.0 out of 5 stars The most heroic of verismo operas... 29 May 2000
By Susan Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This opera is one of my all time favorites. The story based on the true life story of French patriot and poet, Andrea Chenier is inspiring both in music and the libretto. (They did invent the romance, but I can forgive them that!) This recording is very good and I can't recommend another that is better. The main strength of this recording is Pavarotti's full voice (in his prime) rendering of Chenier. This is a tenor role that demands great high notes and endurance. The part of Maddelena is aptly handled by Caballe. She as always, has terrific pianissimos to die for, but she sounds a little harsh and old at times on the forte passages and on the low notes. Nucci is a small voiced, dry sounding Gerard, but with such music it is difficult to make it any less than it is. Unless you just sing the wrong notes! Tom Krause is great as Roucher (I would've like to hear him as Gerard!) Riccardo Chailly conducts with power and restraint- his tempos are just right. The real stars of this opera are Illica's beautiful poetic libretto and Giordano's heroic music. I also recommend the video with Carreras and Marton. If you are a movie fan, it may also be of interest that the aria in the movie Philadelphia with Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington contains the aria "La Mamma Morta" from this opera,with Maria Callas instead of Caballe.

5.0 out of 5 stars No competition!! 7 Jun. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the ultimate Chenier recording that exists. In this recording, we see the level of dramatic and musical intensity that the composer required of the performers. Pav's rendition of the title role reminds us of how this opera is a great promotional medium for the tenor..(he sings the Improvisso with such deceptive ease and lyricism). Caballe does a satisfactory job at potraying Maddalena de Coigny, she does tend to push every now and then, but it does not distract the listener from the great character delineation that she achieves. Leo Nucci is a satisfying Gerard and does a great job with "Nemico della patria". Over all, the solos are done excellently and the final duet is intensely emotional. Chailly leads the entire crew into a very memorable recording, a very respectable tribute to one of the best verismo operas ever written.

5.0 out of 5 stars High drama set to gorgeous and moving music. 2 Jan. 2015
By GARY KAPLAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, this is another opera that the so-called experts love to sneer at. Let them! This is one of my top 10 or 15 operas. I think the story is thrilling and the music absolutely gorgeous. I had the Corelli/Stella recording on LP and loved it, and while Pavarotti may not have the stentorian quality we associate with Corelli (or Del Monaco), what he does have is the most beautiful tenor voice since Bjorling, and uses it to grant effect here. I know that for most fans of this opera THE big tenor area is "Come un bel di di Maggio," my own favorite is the "Improviso" (Un di all'azzurro spazio). There is one glorious melody after another, culminating in one of the most ravishing, if admittedly melodramatic finales in all opera, as the lovers are about to go to the guillotine.
Pavarotti is, of course, not the only star. Montserrat Cabale as Maddalena and Leo Nucci as Gerard acquit themselves beautifully. The recorded sound is up to Decca's usual high standards. Oh yes....Pavarotti CAN summon the requisite power when needed! The opera itself is VERY highly recommended, as is this particular recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giordano: Andrea Chenier / Pavarotti, Caballé, Nucci, Chailly 3 Dec. 2011
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Giordano: Andrea Chenier / Pavarotti, Caballé, Nucci, Chailly is a 1984 Decca Record Company Limited recording starring the immortal Luciano Pavarotti. Riccardo Chailly leads the National Philharmonic Orchestra. William Weaver has written the music notes. The lyrics are available in German, French, English and Italian. Pavarotti is on his A game and his performance is awesome. Truly an opera experience not to be missed. A tremendous recording that I feel Giordano himself would have been pleased to listen to. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.
