About

2-CDs + Blu-ray Audio disc (2.0 LPCM 96kHz/24 Bit) deluxe hardback edition, presenting Giulini’s 1980 reading of Verdi’s Rigoletto with the Wiener Philharmoniker, with a cast led by Cappuccilli, Cotrubas and Domingo. The 160pp booklet includes an essay by Franzpeter Messmer on The Italian Operatic Tradition.

“By and large this set of
Rigoletto must now become the recommended version. [This recording was met with] excited anticipation at finding Giulini once again in the studio recording his beloved Verdi … Giulini, like the composer, was himself out to "make something of a great subject", and he – with the dedication of about as strong a cast as it would be possible to assemble today, the Vienna Philharmonic and the DG engineers – has achieved not just another performance of an oft-recorded work but something with that kind of individual distinction so rarely encountered.” – Gramophone, 1980

“The Giulini set on DG, with Cappuccilli, Cotrubas and Domingo, is exceptional: searching, humane, powerfully registered … Domingo's is one of the greatest accounts of the role ever recorded, from "Questa o quella" through to a classic account of the famous Quartet … The Giulini set is necessary listening for anyone interested in Verdi, Rigoletto, or the tenor's art.” – Gramophone, 1985
