Verdi: Otello - Del Monaco, Kabaivanska, Gobbi, Veasey, Ward, Robinson; Solti. London, 1963
Listen to a Sample:
- This recording demonstrates that the mythology surrounding Georg Solti's years at Covent Garden was more than just hype.
- Mario Del Monaco and Tito Gobbi are perfectly matched as Otello and Iago.
- Raina Kabaivanska is a radiant and strong-willed Desdemona.
- Josephine Veasey's Emilia may be one of the finest I have ever heard.
- The sound is excellent.
- None to mention.
