About

2-CDs + Blu-ray Audio disc (2.0 DTS-HD MA 192kHz/24 Bit), deluxe hardback edition presenting Claudio Abbado’s glorious 1976 recording of Verdi’s Macbeth, featuring the great Shirley Verrett as Lady Macbeth. 180-page book includes essays by the Tonmeister Günter Hermanns and Richard Osborne / Peter Cossé.

“… the palm must go to the DG version … for Abbado's more thoughtful conducting, and for his superior all-round cast, including the young Domingo and, as Banquo, the sable-voiced Ghiaurov. The lead roles are magnificently taken by two great Verdians. Piero Cappuccilli’s haunted Macbeth is a more complex – and more Shakespearean – portrayal … while Shirley Verrett subtly suggests the neurosis, even the pathos, underlying Lady Macbeth’s overweening pride.” – Daily Telegraph, London

“Abbado's tempi are unconventional, but with slow speeds he springs the rhythm so infectiously that the results are most compelling...[Verrett] makes a highly individual Lady Macbeth. Cappuccilli has never sung with a finer range of tone or more imagination on record than here, and Placido Domingo makes a real, sensitive character out of the small role of Macduff.” – The Penguin Guide to Classical Music, 2010
