Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Placido Domingo's third recording of Otello proves to be his finest yet, more freely expressive, even more involved than his previous ones...Cheryl Studer gives one of her finest performances as Desdemona...with plenty of light and shade, Myung-Whun Chung is an urgent Verdian, adopting free-flowing speeds yet allowing Domingo full expressiveness...the Chorus and Orchestra of the Bastille Opera excel themselves, setting new standards for an opera recording...the sound is first rate." - (Highest Rating) Penguin Guide "Placido Domingo's third recording of Otello proves to be his finest yet, more freely expressive, even more involved than his previous ones...Cheryl Studer gives one of her finest performances as Desdemona...with plenty of light and shade, Myung-Whun Chung is an urgent Verdian, adopting free-flowing speeds yet allowing Domingo full expressiveness...the Chorus and Orchestra of the Bastille Opera excel themselves, setting new standards for an opera recording...the sound is first rate." - (Highest Rating) Penguin Guide Read less
