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.

In his unparalleled association with New York’s Metropolitan stretching over four decades, that uniquely versatile maestro James Levine has amassed an astonishing repertoire of 85 operas. In this latest batch of reissues, he is represented with Verdi’s Luisa Miller. Gramophone’s reviewer wrote of this 1991 Met recording:

“I first encountered Levine conducting this work, one he particularly loves, at the Metropolitan in 1971, and was mightily impressed with his Verdian credentials. A youthful tenor called Domingo was the Rodolfo. Here they are, many years later, tackling their parts again. Energy and internal combustion were the special features of Levine’s reading in the theatre; they are again in evidence here … Domingo’s Rodolfo is generous in tone and phrase … As Luisa, Aprile Millo rises finely to the sad, doomed girl of Act 3. ‘Ah! l’ultima preghiera’ is delivered in that plangent, piano tone of which we know she is mistress. A little earlier in the act, she and Vladimir Chernov draw all the tenderness and plaintive beauty out of ‘Andrem, raminghi e poveri’: this is Verdi singing of the highest class in both tone and feeling.”
