    There is a Decca cd I think 1980. Surta e la note etc (Price w Zubin Mehta Tel Aviv Verdi concert only Ernani on the cd.
    Older voice but remarkably has not lost the clarity and beauty. Ernani is a sleeper for Verdi. If you like price try her Christmas albumn you will get points with your friends and family.

    Did Verdi like del Monaco for his interpretation of the character ? Try Pertile, he's even more powerful. If you watch an opera live ,sometimes a singer can leave a different impression. If you like Bergonzi, then try Tito Schipa. I too like Bergonzi but don't dislike
    the typical Othello and Ernani tenors like Del Monaco. I will admit that once some noisy people were congregating by my house and I blasted them away with Othello with those powerful tenors but beauty is in eye of beholder.

    of course the plan could have backfired and more people could have congregated

    Clayton's not the only one who can listen to Wagner.



    So good! I used to think I didn't like Jon Vickers, but as Siegmund he's marvelous. A great recording all around--every Wagnerian should have it!

    Vickers is awesome. Here is a trivia q. Who sang Wontan's Farewell from Die Walkure but earlier sang at Sid Grauman's theater in which the orchestra platform emerged from the pit on an elevator. Hint sang in Die Walkure in 1934 at Met.

    Regarding the Leinsdorf Walküre. I do find, as in my earlier listenings, a notable slackening of the tension and dramatic impetus during the Todesverkündigung scene, just when it's needed: after Siegmund tells Brünnhilde he will not accompany her to Valhall. From here on, as Vickers and Nilsson's exchange becomes more heated, Leinsdorf seems to let the pace and energy sag at several points. While the scene rebounds to end on a boisterous note, I can't help but regret something of a missed opportunity.

    But none of this negates my enjoyment of Act I and the earlier parts of Act II!

    EDIT: Or of the stirring Act II conclusion!

    I don't know what happened. One minute there was a civilized conversation on opera overtures; next thing I know, I started feeling these urges...

    I'm going to delve into this opera by Richard Strauss....taking it first plunge into any of his music actually! One of my friends at school is very enthusiastic about Der Rosenkavalier as he was telling me today.

    Still, that was fine. It is a bit like when something you didn't order at the restaurant comes to the table but you thoroughly enjoy it.
