Saint-Saëns: Samson et Dalila - Verrett, Cassilly, Massard, Foiani; Prêtre. Milano, 1970
Listen to a Sample:
- Shirley Verrett was born to sing Dalila. She harnesses her formidable vocal resources to convey warmth, seduction and venomous spite.
- Richard Cassilly's oversized tenor approaches biblical scale as Samson without ever sacrificing the natural sweetness of his voice.
- Georges Prêtre brings surprising depth to Saint-Saëns lush score.
- None to mention.
