    Wow, both excellent recordings. Can't choose between.

    To commemorate Verdi's birthday, 10 October 1813 and the death of Caballé.

    I knew I had a Lucrezia Borgia but was surprised to see it is with Caballe.

    Conductor/orchestra: Erich Leinsdorf, London Symphony Orchestra
    Cast: Montserrat Caballé (Salome), Sherrill Milnes (Jochanaan), Regina Resnik (Herodias), Richard Lewis (Herod), James King (Narraboth), Júlia Hamari (Page), et. al.

    This is probably my favorite Caballé recording. She is totally credible as a willful teenage Princess, and she has fabulous colleagues -- especially Milnes as the Baptist.

    Occasionally forgetting how much I like Verdi, especially some of the Gardelli recordings. Here are four fabulous voices too.

    Ah yes, more Caballe! But the ending of this opera does not sit well with me.

    Clayton's mention of the Gardelli early Verdi series had me reaching for this:



    Conductor/orchestra: Lamberto Gardelli, ORF (Austrian Broadcasting) Orchestra and Chorus
    Cast: Piero Cappuccilli (Francesco Foscari), José Carreras (Jacopo Foscari), Katia Ricciarelli (Lucrezia Contarini), Samuel Ramey (Jacopo Loredano), Vincenzo Bello (Barbarigo), Elizabeth Connell (Pisana)

    Terrific music plus a compelling plot -- it's easy to understand why this opera now seems to be gaining a toehold in the mainstream repertoire.

    Listening to this one the third time in a row. Musically and vocally this is an excellent production.
    And it apparently is one of the few recordings of this opera in French.
