Orchestra del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, Sir Georg Solti

2CD + Blu-ray Audio

Includes repertoire notes by William Weaver and an essay on the recording and Decca’s use of spatial effects by Richard Mohr.

“Solti motivates his account of Verdi's score with thrilling dynamism, fully displaying the music's grandeur and depth as well as deriving considerable refinement from his Roman forces. His cast is led by Leontyne Price, the Aida of her generation, her enriched soprano fleshing out the title role with heady sensuality.” BBC Music Magazine, 2013

“Leontyne Price had a gift for fusing voice, words and meaning, and was even able to adapt her vocal colours to her conductor. . . She had the voice of velvet, used it with wisdom and artistry for 50 years, and set vocal and theatrical standards in Verdi” Gramophone Magazine

“[Kleiber] is fresh and vibrant, detailed but never fussy, heartfelt but never indulgent … This set’s probably still difficult to beat when it comes to studio recordings in (good) stereo sound, and it’s a ‘classic’ in its own right.” Gramophone Magazine
