Mozart: Idomeneo - Gedda, Norman, Harper, Woodland; Davis. Roma, 1971
Listen to a Sample:
- I may have found my all-time favorite performance of Idomeneo...
- In the title role, Nicola Gedda brings a perfect mix of regal gravitas and grace. His Act III scene, in which he is confronted with the task of sacrificing his son, is nothing short of heart-breaking.
- A young Jessye Norman sounds right at home in the world of Mozart, bringing vocal purity and astonishing breath support to the role of Idamante.
- None to mention.
