Verdi: Un ballo in Maschera - Souliotis, Labò, Paskalis, Minarchi, de la Torre; De Fabritiis. Madrid, 1966
Listen to a Sample:
This performances captures Elena Souliotis at the peak of her very brief career. Only in her twenties, she sings with astonishing power and control (listen to the sample below.) She is not the only draw of this fine performance. Flaviano Labò sings an admirable Riccardo and Kostas Paskalis, also at the beginning of his career is very good as Renato. Oliviero de Fabritiis conducts. The prelude is missing from this performance.
