Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pappano's players provide a firmness of tone in a perfectly balanced sound stage. At full pelt the chorus is equally matched to the tutti of the orchestra. Pappano is such a compelling advocate for Verdi's music that there could be no finer 200th-birthday salute than this stunning disc. Do try to find room for it on your shelves.
