Notes and Editorial Reviews

La Scala Opera House Orchestra & Chorus
Claudio Abbado: Conductor
Live performance, Milan, January 8, 1972

Many years after its first performance, Verdi extensively revised Simon Boccanegra, exhibiting the great faith he had in its splendid music. The story is one of the most confusing in opera, but the musical treasures are many, including some of Verdi's very finest moments. This magnificent 1972 live performance is closely similar to one of the best studio recordings - and costs quite a bit less!
