Verdi: Un Ballo in maschera - Welitsch, Picchi, Silveri, Nino, Watson; Gui. Glyndebourne, 1949
Listen to a Sample:
- Ljuba Welitsch, taking a brief break from the role of Salome, shows a remarkable and innate instinct for Verdi, particularly when called upon to access her opulent and silvery upper register.
- Mirto Picchi's burnished tenor is an excellent fit for the role of Riccardo.
- Previous versions of this recording were not pitched correctly. I have corrected the issue in this remaster.
- None to mention.
