About

In 1950, Ferenc Fricsay made this one and only recording of Verdi’s opera “Rigoletto”. The opera was sung in German as was customary at that time.

This recording refutes convincingly the widespread prejudice that a refined orchestral sound is not of prime importance in Verdi’s operas. Fricsay makes it plainly audible that the essential dramatic features of this opera manifest themselves in the instrumental shades and colours as well as in the expression of the vocal passages.
