About

Sinopoli’s brilliant version of Puccini’s first fully successful opera […] is the most sensuous-sounding reading on record”, wrote the Penguin Guide when this recording was first released. Luxury casting, too, with Mirella Freni outstanding as the heroine, Plácido Domingo in one of his finest roles as Des Grieux, and Brigitte Fassbaender brought in just to sing the famous Madrigal.

awards for this recording:
1985 Grand Prix du Disque
1985 Premio Puccini
1985 Prix du Président de la République

One would not recognize this is a typical Kingsway Hall opera recording, but the sound is consistently spacious and free to bring out the strongly dramatic and characterful qualities of Sinopoli's reading, not least in the warmth of the lyricism.” - Gramophone
