 What a disappointment January 24, 2013 By Ron A. (Forest Hills, NY) See All My Reviews "Based on previous reviews I bought this although I have many of this opera (a few w/Corelli). Was I disappointed. The sound is awful and distracts from the opera.....Corelli is Corelli (a positive)..Gigliola Frazzoni is not bad but a bit strident and Gobbi yells too much. If you want to just hear the excerpts from Acts 1 and 2 (Corelli and Frazzoni) and skip most of the rest...then fine, you can buy it...but for the complete opera look elsewhere." Report Abuse
