Verdi

Verdi: Aïda (Pristine Audio)

A superlative transfer of an Aida which should be in every serious opera collection [PSt]

Verdi: Messa da Requiem (Rondeau)

I have honestly never heard anything like this… [RMo]

Verdi: Rigoletto (Opus Arte)

An imaginative and involving production, but flawed by some intrusive and insensitive vulgarities [PCG]

Verdi falstaff WS121401

Verdi: Falstaff (Urania)

Though Sir Geraint Evans is rather gruff and dry-toned, this lavishly cast recording is worth anyone’s money [GF]

Verdi Aida PACO197

Verdi: Aida (Pristine Audio)

Pristine’s typically successful remastering into Ambient Stereo helps appreciate afresh the virtues of this classic recording [RMo]

Verdi rigoletto OABD7303D

Verdi: Rigoletto (Opus Arte)

A striking new Rigoletto from the Royal Opera House, strongly cast and very well conducted [RWe]

verdi aida pristine

Verdi: Aïda (Pristine)

Pristine illuminates afresh a vintage account of a perennial favourite, always very listenable but now even better [RMo]

Verdi rarities CDS7941
