Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This release features a very talented cast that includes Placido Domingo, Katia Ricciarelli, Ruggero Raimondi and Nicolai Ghiaurov, all captured in Claudio Abbado's exalted account.

BBC Music Magazine
A subtle and idiomatic performance benefits from a strong cast and a sensitive recording. But Abbado's sense of theatre also allows the opera's grandest scenes to resonate vividly.

Gramophone Magazine
None is better or more thoroughly and thoughtfully conducted - and in Verdi, that is of the essence
