About

Sony Classical is pleased to offer lovers of great singing another ten complete opera sets, drawn from the RCA Victor/BMG, CBS/Sony and Eurodisc catalogues.

The most recent of these reissued sets is the 1999 recording of La Favorite, conducted by Marcello Viotti, who “gets the long lines of Donizetti’s melodies just right and holds the big ensembles together well. His Munich forces play and sing handsomely. In Vesselina Kasarova we have a Léonor of admirable poise and beautiful tone” (ClassicsToday.com). “As Fernand”, wrote BBC Music Magazine, “Ramón Vargas is stylish and fluent in his two arias with their dauntingly high range.” The whole recording was praised by Gramophone as “a beautifully conceived and performed version of an opera too often encountered in its Italian guise, but here brought vividly to life in the original French.”
