Verdi: Macbeth / Nucci, Verrett, Ramey, Luchetti, Barasorda

Notes & Reviews:

"Nucci's Macbeth is full of the right sense of fear, foreboding and nervous energy, and it is predominantly well sung...Ramey provides quite the best singing, a sturdy, imposing Banquo...The smaller roles are very well taken...[Chailly's] direction seems direct, unfussy and keen" -Gramophone

BBC Music Magazine
For a time Shirley Verrett was the world's favourite Lady Macbeth. And Chailly reminds us why. Nucci is a sweet-toned villain, but it's Ramey as Banquo who carries off the prizes.
