Verdi: La Forza del destino - Kabaivanska, Domingo, Troyanos, Blankenburg, Talvela, Grundheber; Gregor. Hamburg, 1971


Listen to a Sample:


Placido Domingo had the opportunity to try out many of his roles in his early days in Hamburg.  He sings with fearless ease not so much flinching at the demanding tessitura.  He is joined by a sympathetic Leonora in the form of Raina Kabaivanska.   Tatiana Troyanos fans will enjoy hearing her in Preziosilla, a role that I don't think she ever did again.  Martti Talvela is Padre Guadagno.
