...and still beautiful today as long as you are not one of those rigid Period Performance souls who will go into apoplexy at the mere sight of the recording.

Its virtues are evident. First, a reduced-size orchestra, which helps combat "soupiness" and even allows for some agility in faster movements such as the duos, which are surprisingly pacy for a performance which mostly errs on the side of languorous indulgence, expressive rubato and even slides. Secondly, two of the loveliest voices of that or any time, which blend very well, have excellent trills and an intrinsically velvety timbre, both with a touch of the smokiness which lends pathos. Thirdly, the disc is available in several bargain formats with the bonus of three Concerto Grossi by Scarlatti.

You will have to tolerate mannerisms such as Freni's habit of swooping and using portamenti of a semi-tone and more before most of her higher notes (such as the F sharp to G in the "Qui est homo" duo). Berganza is cleaner in her attack and stylistically more appealing to modern ears; I also do not recall ever or elsewhere hearing her voice sound richer and more plangent.

This is a disc to appeal either to the bel canto connoisseur who already has recordings reflecting modern performance practice by such as Rousset but also as an introduction to the first-time casual listener. It has held its place in the cataloque for many years now and still attracts plaudits by virtue of its energy and musicianship.

The Concerti Grossi are played in decidedly old-fashioned style and not necessarily the worse for that if, like me, you sometimes enjoy Baroque music played in the way. Karajan, for example, treats Handel's masterpieces in the same genre; there will always be a place for it if you are not doctrinaire.
