    Continuing my chronological Verdi journey:



    I love this but I've only got the one version so have nothing with which to compare. Can someone recommend any other version?

    RCA Louisa Miller with: Moffo Bergonzi MacNeil Tozzi Flagello(RCA Italian opera chorus Fausto Cleva conductor.
    Or easy to find but excellent cast: Louisa Miller: Lauri-Volpi Kelston Vaghi Symphony orchestra and Chorus of Roma Della Radio-Televisione Italianate orchestra Cond by Mario Rossi Chorus cond.by Gaetano Riccitelli.(Cetra Everest)
    Or Luisa Miller: Ricciarelli Domingo Bruson chorus and orchestra of the royal opera house Coventry Garden Lorin Maazel. (Deutschland Grammophone) Your best bet to copy verdi's intent I think is the one withLauri-Volpi. The RCA one also is in that tradition with that beautiful Italian all star cast including their nice Italian accents filled with passion and compassion. The Grammaphone one is probably higher quality of sound as it's newer I think)
    Anyway sorry I put that Verdi comment in as who really knows how he wanted the opera interpreted. Mascagni on the other hand was alive and indicated the Gigli cast of the opera he introduced was the way he wanted it performed.
    This my comment is only my opinion of the truth. All have great moments of listening pleasure.

    No need to apologise about the Verdi comment, I welcome all opinions!

    I will look at your suggestions, thank you.

    Aida with Leontyne Price, 1961 Decca Solti vs 1970 RCA Leinsdorf......


    No doubt for me Price is the ultimate Aida, Solti with his love of brass gives us a very dramatic powerful Aida, Rita Gorr (Solti) is so good why do we have so few recordings with her

    Price 1961 Aida (Solti)

    My Luis Miller is on Everest (Cetra) it's a 33 1/3 rpm set .Mario Rossi is the conductor. Maybe they re- did the cover for the cd.

    Poor Lauri-Volpi . I just checked my 33 1/3,Louis Miller (I believe you have the same recording as mine was in 1951. Your cover
    With that zucchini does not do justice to Lauri-Volpi. He is one of the all time great tenors. Try him on I Puritani a te cars or Turandot
    Nessun Dorma . My cover has the typical male and female dressed like Cinderella and Prince Charming. Good to have sense of humor but why that cover could make people think it's some amateurs. Hope you give it a listen

    Price singing Ritorna vincitor is priceless. Tebaldi and a sleeper Dousalina Gianini(spelling) all seem to follow that style but
    Price really owns that Verdi Aida role

    Mafalda Favero re-opened the la Scala opera house. She sang In Manon Lescaut. (Conducted by Toscanini)
    A l1937? Recording of her singing Signor Ascolta Turandot can be found on MDP records.
    So my little quiz can baffle people who don't read this late nite post? Those Polish people must admire Italians as I see they put the Zucinni on that cover. What label was that Cd ? I love Chopin so no offensive ethnic jokes intended.
