Notes and Editorial Reviews

Excellent value on Philips Duo is the 1980 Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, account, idiomatically conducted by Colin Davis and with the entire cast, led by a heroic Carreras and eloquent Ricciarelli, on fine vocal form. It slightly hangs fire dramatically – a live recording might just have provided those extra frissons of risk and excitement – but it compares favourably with more illustrious golden-age accounts.

Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5)
