Verdi: Aida - Vishnevskaya, Simionato, Vickers, Shaw, Robinson; Balkwill. London, 1964


Listen to a Sample:


Upfront I have to point out that the sound is not very good.   That said, I wanted to make this recording available because of the phenomenal cast.  Jon Vickers and Giuletta Simionato are both represented on recordings in their respective roles.  Their brand of intensity makes for a hot judgment scene.  More interesting perhaps is the Aida of Galina Vishnevskaya.  I do not know of any other recordings of her singing this role.  She is truly magnificent and it is too bad that there are not more documents of her singing Italian operas.
