Top Customer Reviews

By Ralph Moore TOP 100 REVIEWER on 10 Nov. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Whether you buy the complete set or the highlights - both available absurdly cheaply in various incarnations - one thing is certain: you will be acquiring some of the best performances of the best arias and duets Mozart ever wrote for the female voice in the exquisite singing of the three great ladies here, Gundula Janowitz, Edith Mathis and Tatiana Troyanos, who compose a totally unbeatable trio. It is hard to mention this recording without some brief reference to the Letter Duet as featured in "The Shawshank Redemption" and I for one am delighted that it turned so many people onto opera. Besides, that track was selected for good reason: it's heavenly.

So why only four stars when the women's singing is clearly five and beyond? Well; Böhm's conducting, while elegant and detailed, does not quite have the drive, zip and tingle which Solti or Karajan inject into this music; you can hear that from the start in the neatly negotiated overture. Secondly, the men are not up to the same standard as the women: Hermann Prey has a rather plaintive, over-refined sound for the working-class hero Figaro and could do with a bit more backbone; compared with the best, Peter Lagger is distinctly workaday and lacks the rolling relish a really fruity bass confers upon the role of Bartolo, while D-F-D's dry tone is hardly impressive as he barks his way through the Count's coloratura at the end of "Vedrò, mentr'io sospiro" and I note that in the highlights disc his contribution is restricted to that one aria and his part in the Finale, while the ladies are rightly given the lionesses' share and room is found even for Barbarina's arietta, prettily trilled by Barbara Vogel.

If you want the original music to the soundtrack to the movie The Shawshank redemption. The bit where he plays the opera to the rest of the prisoners. This is it! It took me a while to find it and had to even e-mail classic fm producer. He assures me that these are the two ladies who sing the aria from "Le nozze di Figaro" - The Marriage of Figaro: Act 3: Duettino: 'Che soave zeffietto' - Susanna, Contessa. It really is lovely to listen to. I bought this cd just for this aria. The rest of the highlights are also very good. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars My son and I have watched this DVD over 20 times. 11 Dec. 2012
By Doug Sterling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I chose this story because of the meaninful conflict. Besides the superb acting by all involved, the song by Figaro has blessed me many times.... even though it has taken me years to find it. I have never bought classical musical before. I don't even unstand the wordds , but it reaches my heart anyway.I won't give anything away but but you won't be sorry if you buy it or rent it from NetflixIt is the best movie I've ever seen and I've seen at least several hundred or more...too many my wife says :-)

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
But very good indeed. It contains the song I was looking for but they are all small samples of songs. Still, I enjoy this one and would not give it up.

The sound is really good for so venerable a recording (1968) and while it does not replace my top recommendations (Solti and Marriner on Decca, Karajan's live Salzburg performance in 1974 or Varviso live at Glyndebourne in 1962 - see my reviews for all of these) its place is assured on the shelves on any Mozart-lover simply by virtue of the presence of those Three Graces.
