 All round excellence July 11, 2017 By J. Tatnall (West Grove, PA) See All My Reviews "An unbeatable cast, fine orchestra, outstanding conductor, and top recording crew work together to bring this wonderful performance to disc. Freni and Pavarotti are a joy to hear together in these parts, and Milnes' beautifully sung Scarpia is truly frightening as only a youthful and uncontrollable nobleman in power would be."
