One of the best
Erik Aleksander Moe | Oslo, Norway | 02/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This one was the second I bought, I also had the Solti recording, and I loved it. I thought it was much better than the Solti recording mainly because of that in the Solti recording all the fun was gone.My only objection with this recording is Carlos Feller who sings Bartolo. His aria in Act 1 was very unsteady. Other than that it was a wonderful experience. I loved Bryn Terfel in the title role. He displayed the comedy extremely well and with Alison Hagley as his Susanna with her beautifully pure innocent voice, were they a wonderful pair.I also loved Rodney Gilfrey and Hillevi Martinpelto as the Count and Countess. Gardiner really made a magificent performance with these wonderful artists.I later bought the Kleiber version from Decca Legends and although I loved that recording too, it is this one that always go back to. It was commented that the coughs and laughing were definitive negative aspects of this recording, but I'd say that it adds a lot to the atmosphere. But I'm a guy that loves the live performances, because of the added atmosphere and adrenaline of the live performances.Once again, a magificent recording."
Simply The Best!

"Come on now. Is there any other conception of this opera that even comes close? Gardiner feels the music, the tempi, the momentum as no other. Yes, I have heard all the classic recordings, but they all sound dead compared to this one. The singers are all at least good (Terfel is great)with the possible exception of the countess who is a liability on most recordings, but she isn't that bad. Gardiner's attention to musical detail (even though somewhat obscured by the live recording) is awesome. I can't stop listening to it."
Best Figaro

"Despite some flaws this is the best Figaro in the catalogue. Lots of humour and very realistic "noises" makes the opera real, you can almost see the play/acting. When the Count nocks on Susanna's door I get fooled every time and run to my own front-door to see who's there. :-)"
