Notes and Editorial Reviews

Historically, in the 1950s and 60s, it was very common on the Opera stages and in recording studios to sing Italian Operas in German. The Verdi: Sung in German recordings produced by EMI Electrola between 1953 and 1973 are still just as legendary today - with stars such as Nicolai Gedda, Rudolf Schock, Brigitte Fassbaender, Josef Metternich, and Gottlob Frick. For the first time, these recordings are available in a 10 CD-Box - creating a unique chapter of German recording-history.

Verdi: Sung in German is a wonderful set of performances featuring Verdi's stellar works. This 10-CD Box shows the true talents of one of the most prolific composers in the history of classical music. Included are many of Verdi's most famous operas
Read more such as Rigoletto, Ein Maskenball, Aida and Der Troubadour. The 10th disc in this set entitled "Single Shots" is a collection works from operas such as Aroldo, DieMacht des Schicksals, Don Carlos and La Traviata. composer.
