    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.

    Technically not opera, but close enough to include:


    Verdi, Songs

    Beautiful album

    The junk merchant doesn't sell his product to the consumer, he sells the consumer to his product. He does not improve and simplify his merchandise. He degrades and simplifies the client.
