Verdi: Rigoletto - Glossop, Pavarotti, Brooks, Marsee; Guadagno. 1973
Listen to a Sample:
- This performance will remind you how Luciano Pavarotti became a worldwide sensation. The beauty of his voice is only surpassed by his impeccable style and innate musicianship.
- In the title role Peter Glossop brings vocal beauty, style and a strong connection to the text (along with some very impressive high notes.)
- Patricia Brooks is a very sympathetic Gilda even if she struggles a bit with the odd high note.
- There is some brief digital interfearance during "Ella mi fu rapita" and "Tutte le feste".
