Massenet: Thaïs / Anna Moffo, Gabriel Bacquier, José Carreras, Justino Diaz. New Philharmonia Orch., Julius Rudel

Notes & Reviews:

Sony Classical offers opera lovers another ten complete recordings from the RCA Victor, CBS/Sony and Eurodisc catalogues, with highlights from La Juive and the complete Tha´s with Anna Moffo as well as Schoenberg's Moses und Aron by Hans Rosbaud for the first time on CD, remastered from the analogue masters. This latest release is one of the widest ranging yet in this series, spanning the history of theatrical music from Monteverdi to Schoenberg. Another CD premiere, one that is sure to excite and delight many opera aficionados, also stars La Moffo. She is heard in the title role of Massenet's Tha´s in one of her last and most controversial recordings. Dramatically Moffo inhabits the outsized role of a courtesan-turned-saint completely. Vocally Well, perhaps it's time for a reassessment
