Mozart: La Clemenza di Tito - Berganza, Krenn, Garcisanz, Lerer; García-Asensio. Barcelona, 1976


Listen to a Sample:


Teresa Berganza is one of those singers about whom you almost never hear a bad word.  Here she sings the role of Sesto.  She sings "Parto, Parto" with truly gorgeous legato and then tears into the allegro section with a vengeance.  Werner Krenn is noble as Tito.  I never understood why this opera isn't more popular.  The story is a bit old fashion but the music seems to be pointing towards Beethoven and romanticism.   The sound is very good.
