Verdi: Don Carlo - Vickers, G. Jones, Randova, Bordoni, Siepi, Werner; Guadagno. Wien, 1975


Listen to a Sample:


With Gwyneth Jones and Jon Vickers singing the title roles this could be thought of as Verdi with a pinch of Wagner.   Certainly the voices are immense.   Both maintain a sensitivity to the style and husband their resources where necessary.  The final duet is particularly beautiful- an exhausted and wistful farewell.  Cesare Siepi is tragic as Filippo.  As a bonus I have included scenes from a performance of Don Carlo with Ingrid Bjoner, Brigitte Fassbaender and Hans Hotter.
