Notes & Reviews:
Historically, in the 1950s and 60s, it was very common on the Opera stages and in recording studios to sing Italian Operas in German. The Verdi: Sung in German recordings produced by EMI Electrola between 1953 and 1973 are still just as legendary today - with stars such as Nicolai Gedda, Rudolf Schock, Brigitte Fassbaender, Josef Metternich, and Gottlob Frick. For the first time, these recordings are available in a 10 CD-Box - creating a unique chapter of German recording-history.
Verdi: Sung in German is a wonderful set of performances featuring Verdi's stellar works. This 10-CD Box shows the true talents of one of the most prolific composers in the history of classical music. Verdi: Sung in German includes many of Verdi's most famous operas as Rigoletto, Ein Maskenball, Aida and Der Troubadour. The 10th disc in this set entitled "Single Shots" is a collection works from operas like Aroldo, DieMacht des Schicksals, Don Carlos and La Traviata. This set features some of the talented voices in classical opera such as Erika Koth, Marcel Cordes, Rudolf Schock and Alfred Germont. These pieces capture the essence of Verdi's amazing talent as a composer.
