Verdi: Il Trovatore (In German) - Rosvaenge, Sorrell, Draxler, Allman; Quadri. Wien, 1962
Listen to a Sample:
- The cast of this German-language Trovatore is remarkably strong particularly Christine Sorrell as Leonora.
- Robert Allman as Di Luna and Sonja Draxler are also quite good.
- Ironically, the weakest link of the cast is the most famous, although Helge Rosvaenge must be given props for technically mastering a part like Manrico at the age of 65(!)
