Product Description

Sony Classical is proud to announce the release of Domingo at the MET, a 3-CD anniversary set with many previously unreleased live recordings celebrating Plácido Domingo’s 45th season at the Metropolitan Opera.

About Domingo at the MET

There have been many legendary tenors who have performed at the Met over its 130-year history. From Jean de Reszke in the late 1800s to Enrico Caruso in the early 1900s, from Corelli, Vickers, and McCracken in the 1960s to Luciano Pavarotti, who rose to prominence in the 1970s, the Met has been home to a remarkable array of tenors. But no other tenor in Met history has enjoyed a career of such astounding breadth, longevity, and musical and dramatic excellence, as Plácido Domingo.

Forty-five years ago, Plácido appeared on the Met stage for the first time, stepping in to replace an ailing Franco Corelli as Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur and announcing his arrival as a major new talent. Today, he’s still performing on our stage, having triumphed last season in the baritone role of Germont in La Traviata, and this year reprising his acclaimed turn as Neptune in the Met’s Baroque pastiche The Enchanted Island—one of his astounding 143 roles, of which he’s sung 48 at the Met. I can’t think of any other artist in the history of opera who would be capable of accomplishing such a feat.

Somehow, in the midst of learning new operas and performing, Plácido also finds time to run the Los Angeles Opera and to conduct all over the world. For 45 years at the Met, Plácido has been one of opera’s greatest forces. We’re proud and thankful for all of the invaluable contributions he has made to the life of our company, and we congratulate him on this stunning new collection.

Hooray, hooray for opera house archives. What a treasure trove the Met and Sony have delivered! The quality of the sound is, on my playback equipment, excellent from the earliest to the most recent recordings. The earliest performance is from 1969 and the most recent from 2013, with a total of 42 tracks, 21 of which are 'first releases'! The all-Verdi disc has been exceptionally well put-together, opening with Gabriele Adorno while saving Simon himself for the penultimate track, and with Germont père following his son as the centre-piece! And whoever came up with the idea of putting Niun mi tema immediately after La donna è mobile was a genius! There are treats galore on all three discs, personal highlights being the Gluck, the Tchaikovsky, the Wolf-Ferrari and the Tan Dun, as these come from performances which, despite the distance between my home and New York, I have been able to note in the booklet that 'I was there'!

Given the depth and range of Mr Domingo's repertoire and his length of career, choosing the items for a 3-CD set from any of the major opera houses is bound to require some very tough decisions! Bearing this in mind, what follows is an observation rather than a complaint. I would have loved a Mozart item in this set as I retain to this day wonderful memories of a Domingo performance of Idomeneo at the Met in October 2001.

A final and fitting note - Amazon had been informing me for several weeks that this order would be delivered to me on 24 March 2014. In the event, there was a knock on my door the previous day and a courier delivered it to me by hand, on SUNDAY the 23rd!

This is without doubt one of the best Classical CD box sets I've bought for a long time. I already had a few of the performances, but there were a lot I didn't have, and one or two that I was totally unfamiliar with. I have always preferred Domingo's darker high baritone timbre to the brasher delivery of Pavarotti. And in fact we do get one of his more recent forays into the baritone repertoire with Père Germont's 'Di Provenza il mar'. There are a lot of cherries, here, of course, but also quite a few less commonly heard pieces - Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari's 'Sly', for example, and Tan Dun's 'The First Emperor'. They are not presented chronologically; rather, they are grouped in operatic styles or composers. Most are from Italian operas, but we also get a goodish dose of French, some Wagner, one Russian and one in English.
The sound is overall excellent, with depth and a good balance between voice and orchestra, the brass coming over particularly well even on my small external computer speakers. There is no audience noise, and the applause is faded out after around six seconds - on occasions not included at all.
There is a mini booklet included, with full track listings giving performance dates, conductor and any accompanying singers; one or two photos of Domingo in costume for some of the featured performances; and a full list of all his Met appearances.
I am hugely pleased I decided to try this set, and I give it a hearty recommendation to any Domingo lover reading this. I doubt you will be disappointed.

So much pleasure in three CDs! Domingo at his best in every role, many under the baton of the superb James Levine. This is a treat indeed for music lovers: technical brilliance, great musicality and a glorious voice.
