CD Reviews

Poor audio spoils superstars
Eric Winkler | 07/05/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"World-class names, but a 1967 live recording that sounds like it was made in 1927. Huge volume swings cut in whenever a singer opens their mouth, spoiling the phrase. What a shame! Buy another recording: it was not even worth it!"
Disappointing - I threw mine away
Eric Winkler | 07/07/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I came to this one with high expectations, but I ended throwing away the CD. The sound makes the singing unlistenable: the volume swoops up and down at the beginning and ending of phrases; these great singers would be embarasseed to hear themselves on it. What a shame! the music deserves a better technology, and you can get it in other recordings."
Singers should sue the company

"The sound in this CD is so bad that you may just throw it away if you happen to own it. The performance lacks in authenticity, since the voices are not as intended by Bellini. If authenticity is a priority, the Baltsa-Gruberova recording is the best I have heard. If this historical performance tempts you though (and it is definitely an excellent one), then get it from another company. Another reviewer writes it sounds like it dates from the 20s, but I can assure him that I own lots of remastered recordings from the 20s and they sound a lot better!"
