CD Reviews

9/9
Torbjørn Lygre | Norway | 11/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's very nearly perfect recording. You can hear that it's some old from 1966 in sound quality, but quit god. The singer Franco Corelli have a brilliant voice. The choir is brilliant. I give it 9/9 of 10/10. The first number is for the artist and preforming, the second is for the sound. It's one of my favorite Operas. Recomand it highly."
Very enjoyable

"I love Faust and own many versions of the work, about 16 at last count both studio and live, but I always avoided this one largely because of the unenthusiastic reviews professional critics had given it over the years. When I finally got around to listening to it out of sheer curiosity this weekend I was overwhelmed by the quality of the voices and the full, warm Decca sound from 1966. I have nothing much to add otherwise to what the listeners have already said. My experience, though, goes to suggest how misleading the various record guides and magazines can be. I'm convinced that Ghiaurov here offers the best sung Faust since Pinza and if I had continued to rely on conventional critical wisdom I would never have heard it."
