 Quite Simply: THE BEST! June 19, 2019 By Christopher Mankiewicz (Los Angeles,, CA) See All My Reviews "All in all, this recording, beautifully remastered by RCA, is simply the best ever. Price and Milnes are in sensational form, and the result is absolutely thrilling." Report Abuse
 A spectcular recording April 15, 2019 By James Wood (Acton, MA) See All My Reviews "Everything about this recording of Il tabarro jumps out and convinces you that the critics who rate it very highly among Puccini's works are completely correct. First the singers--it would be difficult if not impossible to select singers as perfect as Price, Domingo and Milnes. The recording was made in 1971, and all three were at their peak--though given Domingo's longevity, his peak lasted for decades. Leinsdorf's conducting is also superb--details in the orchestration pop out--his touch is delicate when it needs to be and powerful when called for. This is a fairly recent re-release of a recording first released in 1972 on LP. I don't know how I missed it at the time, but if you don't have it, get it." Report Abuse
