The performances from the singers, orchestra and conductor on the CD are terrific - I thought the performance much more exciting and immediate than the recent Covent Garden effort. But if you're a recording quality fanatic you'll be disappointed with the engineering on this disc. There is little choice in recordings of this opera, which is why I bought it, but one soon gets used to the audio shortcomings and is soon absorbed into the drama, a tribute to the performers.

Bad, bad sound engineering. The voices are blurred somehow, veiled. At some point in the first act one cannot say if Monforte is a baritone or a dramatic tenor. Elena's score is known to be particularly challenging, but how to follow?

Besides, the soloists voices are feeble in contrast with the chorus. Right at the beginning if you try to amplify to a decent volume, just enough to appreciate the individual voices, the next chorus score will blow the windows away. Afterwards it's improving a bit, but it's still irritating. And these annoying applauses, what a nuisance...

Levine's 1974 recording remains unbeatable. You may still get it for around $100.

Edit: I was sure that the album was bought from Amazon, sorry. I will not delete the review, however.

By ziggy_fan TOP 500 REVIEWER on 15 Dec. 2013
An all start cast, delivering star performances. The orchestra is in top form and Muti guides the whole thing with musical ingenuity. Number after number on this set will leave you smiling with the delicious melodies and Verdi's earlier works melodrama. The star for me is Cheryl Studer. Her voice and her sense of drama are stunning. I give 4 stars instead of 5 because the recording is on occasions not great especially when soloist ensemble is juxtaposed on choruses, however it is a live recording and the excitement of the adoring crowd with their applause after each act adds to the sense of occasion every time you listen to this.

Nice performance, good singers. The only 'negative' thing: lot of stage noices...realy live performance
