    Verdi- Aida
    .
    Conducted by Georg Solti, with Leontyne Price and John Vickers

    I've heard that some don't like Vickers voice, but I'm not sure why. I bought this performance for Leontyne Price, and Vickers has been a very pleasant surprise. A very heroic Celeste Aida, with good diction to boot. I'm only one act in so far, but I'm very happy with this recording.

    Jon Vickers does a fantastic Florestan in Beethoven's Fidelio conducted by Otto Klemperer and almost an equally good in Herbert von Karajan's version.
