    I understand this recording doesn't really register with most folks - DFD doesn't match up with other bass/baritones, etc. Aside from that, I find Elena Suliotis' Lady M absolutely thrilling!

    This is good, but not particularly inspiring while trying to pack...

    ...
    They love to put everything down, those Elena haters.
    Never you mind, listen and enjoy.

    On one of those other music forums the question was raised concerning composers or works that you should be more familiar with than you are. I had to admit that I am not as well versed in the operas of Verdi as I should be... especially when considering the fact that my first real experience of opera was Zeffirelli's La Traviata and my first live experience of an opera production was of Aida... both works that I love to this day. In spite of this... I may actually own more recordings of Wagner's Ring or Mozart's Die Zauberflöte than of Verdi operas.

    Having admitted to that, I have begun to fill in some of the gaps in my Verdi collection... and listen to some of the un-listened-to recordings of Verdi... including this one:

    Congress .. But I repeat myself." -Mark Twain

    If there is any doubt after hearing the 1952 live MacBeth who is the great Lady M, you can listen to the 3 main MacBeth tracks in this vivid studio recitial disc......any remaining doubts will vanish

    I bought this in a weak moment last week (after the concert performance I saw) from Amazon - it appears to be out of print, so I decided to seize the moment. Recording and performance is very good (with Jennifer Larmore, Hei Kyung Hong and Paul Groves), but I don't think it surpasses the recording with Gruberova and Baltsa:

    There was never any doubt, but I took your advice and listened to Callas portrays Verdi Heroines. Awesome !!

    And, my other Cap/Montecchi purchase features Beverly Sills (who doesn't seem to be at her peak), Janet Baker and Nicolai Gedda:

    I am listing to this marvelous Lucia di Lammermoor .
    Sills and Bergonzi are is such good voice and there duet is to die for.
    The mad scene is so trilling , so if I had to choose one after Joan Sutherland, it had to be this one.

    Might have to crank this out on Spotify. I love Bergonzi and am really not familiar with Sills, so it will be interesting.

    Back to listening again after my holidays in the South Island - spending time with my opera-hating family puts a dent in my favourite hobby, although I did manage to catch up on some good YouTubes once everyone was asleep.

    Now in the car I'm rocking some Vivaldi. Some of those fast arias might possibly not be the best thing to drive to, hehe. But the casts are amazing.





    Found this on Spotify, snuck it in at work on Thursday evening as I had no visitors to the library.
