Verdi: Il Trovatore - Caballé, Cossutta, Arkhipova, Milnes, Van Allen, Begg; Guadagno. London, 1975


Listen to a Sample:



  • This Trovatore may be one of my all-time favorites.
  • Montserrat Caballé's lightning fast agility is made all the more impressive by the oppulence of her voice.
  • Carlo Cossutta was a very underrated tenor. His baritonal tenor relishes both the long melodic lines and dramatic outbursts Verdi throws at the tenor.
  • Irina Arkhipova is a wild Azucena and Sherrill Milnes is at the absolute height of his powers, interpolating a high b flat at the end of the opera.


  • Nothing to mention
