CD Reviews

Outstanding reocording!!!
Rod Tierman | 01/07/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording of Werther had served for years as the only viable recording of this work and is still probably the best overall performance of this opera. Gedda and De Los Angeles are in absolute glorious voice here. Gedda is able to realize both the lyric and dramatic moments in this very demanding role probably better than any other tenor ("Pourquoi mes Revillier" is a prime example). An absolutely beautiful tenor voice! Pretre's conducting is very impassioned. The perfect cast for Werther. THE recording of Werther to own."

"Yes, Gedda is a wonderful Werther. He really makes the listener feel the poet's woes. All the minor players are also very good in the recording. The only weak link is de los Angeles. If a soprano Charlotte doesn't bother you, a shrill one certainly would. Many people love her, but in all of the recordings of hers that I have listened to she was too shrill for my ears. She is the only reason that I don't give this recording 5 stars."
