Donizetti: Roberto Devereux - Caballé, Oncina, Alberti, Chookasian, Lambrinos; Cillario. 1965
Listen to a Sample:
Montserrat Caballé was still new to the international in 1965 but she was quickly proving herself to be a star. This performance finds her at her best. Her amazing extremes of dynamic control are astounding. Her declamatory passages are immense and her coloratura is perfect. The final scene is so giving I can't imagine who she managed to walk off the stage. The sound is very good.
