Verdi: Otello (Excerpts) - McCracken, Rysanek, Protti; Danon. Wien, 1964
Listen to a Sample:
- James McCracken's voice is tireless in the title role.
- As Desdemona, Leonie Rysanek strikes a perfect balance between delicate and head-strong, bringing added dimension to a role that can very easily become milquetoast.
- There is some static throughout the recording.
