>Verdi, Giuseppe : Ernani
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

  • This 1998 Vienna State Opera production of Verdi's Ernani was the first in that house in more than 70 years.
  • Conductor Seiji Ozawa's only Verdi Vienna premier.
  • The casting was ideal, led by American tenor Neil Shicoff as Ernani and American lirico spinto soprano Michele Crider as Elvira.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The 1998 Ernani was Ozawa's first new production at the Vienna Opera, and to a great extent he's responsible for its success. This is a tremendously exciting performance, where the great ensembles move smartly along and the singers are perfectly balanced against the orchestra. The best of them is Michele Crider. Alvarez is a rich-voice. The stereo sound is very good, almost of studio quality.
