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.
