Ponchielli: La Gioconda / Caballe, Pavarotti, Baltsa, Milnes and Ghiaurov. Bartoletti

Notes & Reviews:

The Penguin Guide
The colorfully atmospheric melodrama of this opera gives the Decca engineers the chance to produce one of their most vivid opera recordings. Caballe... produces glorious sounds. Pavarotti has impressive control and heroic tone. Commanding performances too from Milnes as Barnaba, Ghiaurov as Alvise and Baltsa as Laura, firm and intense all three. Bartoletti proves a vigorous and understanding conductor presenting the blood and thunder with total commitment but finding the right charm in the most famous passage, the Dance of the hours.
