Verdi: I Vespri siciliani - Gencer, Guelfi, Pugliese, Rossi-Lemeni; Gavazzeni. Roma, 1964


Listen to a Sample:


Leyla Gencer was of the rarest breeds- a true Verdi coloratura soprano.  Anybody who knows the roles of Lady Macbeth and Elvira know the distinction- a soprano who has agility and power at the same time.  Here she uses those resources along with her acting still marvelously, soaring from High C to low C with flawless technique.  The sound is very good.
