Verdi: La Forza del destino - Stella, Bergonzi, Dondi, Lane, Melitti, Zaccaria; Capuana. Napoli, 1963
Listen to a Sample:
Antonietta Stella and Carlo Bergonzi were in the prime of their careers when this performance of La Forza del destino took place. They sing with astonishing security, making their notoriously treacherous parts seem easy. This lyricism reminds the listener that Verdi, even at his most dramatic, was at his core a bel canto composer. The sound is good.
