    Between Sills, Caballe, and Gheorghiu, I am sticking with Gheorghiu as my favorite so far.

    A totally awesome Traviata recording here (just arrived today). This one rates a permanent place on my MP3 player along with Gheorghiu. No others that I have listened to rate (for me) highly enough for continued listening (Caballe, Sills, Netrebko).

    Both quite good. Arrived yesterday. My initial reaction is that I still hold Gheorghiu at the top, followed by de los Angeles, then these two. Beyond that I did not find Sills or Caballe that exciting.

    Have you listened to the OL favourite recording (well, what was the favourite six years or so ago when we did the poll) by Kleiber?

    I don't think you'll be disappointed -- Cotrubas is an incredibly touching Violetta, and Domingo and Milnes aren't exactly small potatoes, either.

    Live Moffo set is better IMO than the studio set below. I still rate Gheorghiu #1, followed by de los Angeles, then Moffo live. Moffo studio, Caballe, and Sills are farther down the list.




    Callas and Studer coming next week. Meanwhile, This one I just acquired is up next!

    Well I have been skipping around. Caballe is actually quite good, especially Addio Del Passato:
