Lorin Maazel conducts the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro la Fenice in this 2004 performance of Giuseppe Verdi's classic opera. It tells of the tempestuous relationship between the consumptive Violetta and her young admirer, Alfredo - a relationship fated by society's disapproval. This production features performances by Patrizia Ciofi, Roberto Sacca and Dmitri Hvorostovsky.
Dmitri Hvorostovsky's magnificent Giogio Germont steals the show,while there's solid conducting from Lorin Maazel. Performance *** Recording *** --BBC Music Magazine,Aug'11

Personally, I find Marlis Petersen, singing the role for the first time, wonderfully refreshing in the role of Violetta Valéry. Her principal Act 1 aria 'Ah fors è lui' and cabaletta are sung beautifully, purely and without mannerisms, credibly sifting through the conflicting emotions, while her Act 3 'Addio del passato', is just as effective and affecting. Going against more common interpretation, Giuseppe Varano's Alfredo Germont isn't the cocky young man or the impetuous hothead as seen recently on recordings featuring Ramón Vargas, Rolando Villazón or Joseph Calleja. Here, he's a bespectacled nerd, a bookworm in a duffel coat, a shy, inexperienced romantic dreamer who seeks inspiration in his books of poetry. His voice isn't as strong as the aforementioned tenors either, but, by the same token, the performance consequently loses all the operatic mannerisms and finds a way to express more realistically the inner nature of his character.Read more ›
