5.0 out of 5 stars The Recording To Have!, 21 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Verdi: Aida (Audio CD)
There are a huge amount of recordings of this opera, usually with all star casts. The competition, therefore, is fierce but this recording stands just above rival versions. Caballe sings the title role with power and expression as well as with great beauty. The Nile scene has never been sung so movingly. Domingo is in fine heroic voice as Radames and gives a much better account than he does on other labels..... The rest of the cast are first rate too, there are no weak links. The conducting is superb, if a little on the fast side, and the re- mastering brings out all the splendour of the score. Listen to the brass in the grand march- magnificent! There are other good interpretations but they do not have the sound quality to match. If you are on a budget then the next best recording is the Solti version with Price and Vickers on Double Decca. If not, don't be put off by the price and go for a cheaper version. Save up and buy this one!
