Bayreuth, 1956 & 1977
It is encouraging to know that even after years of trying to track down as many versions of Parsifal, there are still new versions out there waiting to be discovered.
The two I had the pleasure of working on this year are:
Ballo with Sotto, Raimondi & Zanasi
As an added gift to you all, I am happy to offer this performance of Un Ballo in maschera featuring Renata Scotto as Amelia, Gianni Raimondi as Gustavo and Mario Zanasi as Renato as this week's free download!
Download it while you can!
