Gounod: Faust - Gedda, Ghiaurov, Harper, Massard; Bartoletti. Buenos Aires, 1971
Listen to a Sample:
- The role of Faust was right in the sweet spot of Nicolai Gedda's honey-toned tenor.
- The burnished elegance of Nicolai Ghiaurov's bass voice, gives this particular devil a non-negligible degree of sex appeal.
- Heather Harper brings richness of tone and remarkable agility to the role of Marguerite.
- The sound is a bit muffled.
