    From this period, I've had some pleasant experiences with operas like Traetta's Antigona, Jommelli's Armida abbandonata, Johann Christian Bach's La Clemenza di Scipione and of course bigger names like Grétry, Paisiello or Cimarosa.

    A little bit later, but being a delightful mixture of Mozart and Rossini, I love Carlo Soliva's Giulia e Sesto Pompeo.

    Hi desiree and welcome. I gather from elsewhere that we share a love for this Puccini opera.

    Elena Souliotis

    What a discovery hearing this great Nabucco, one of the very few studio recordings of Souliotis and she blows me away, the closest yet I have heard any singer capture the spirit of Callas

    Nina Stemme is OK, Carlos Alvarez is fantastic, and Salvatore Licitra, RIP, is about as exciting as sliced luncheon meat in this. Updated production, not sure about it.



    The late Verdi thread inspired me to listen to this:

    With the omission of L'Elisir, Puccini and Charpentier. I think I have to get some complete Mozart stuff with her (there's that Karajan Figaro and Mass in C minor).

    I am probably going to get shot down in flames for this. However I gave this a listen last night as I am going to see Mr Netrebko perform as the Don tonight and I thought it was terrible. It started right from the overture which IMHO almost ruined one of the greatest pieces of music of the 18th Century. Also I thought the singing was distinctly average. I thought I would give this HIP version a try but I won't go near Jacobs Mozart again.

    Give me Giulini or even the more problematic Haitink version any day.

    You will save lots of money now not buying more Jacobs/HM......very expensive sets

    The packaging is quite beautiful as a consulation
