Released in 1966 and sadly not always available, this remains my favorite DON CARLO. There are lots of great performances available, still, this one is special!! Sung in Italian, the Fontainebleau scene is included,back then not usual practice. Tebaldi and Bergonzi sing it superbly. The cast is uniformly wonderful. Tebaldi was still close to her prime, the voice rich and warm. Bergonzi was in his prime, and there is no better Don Carlo on disc or CD. Ghiaurov and Talvela,respectively Philip and the Inquisitor, have the necessary vocal weight for their roles, and their duet is thrilling and chilling. Some would argue that Fischer-Dieskau did not have the ideal Verdi voice, still, his is an intelligent, well sung Posa. Bumbry is a tempestuous Eboli. Luxury casting includes Joan Carlyle as the Celestial Voice. The Royal Opera House Orchestra and Chorus perform brilliantly for Solti, whose conducting is consistently exciting and well paced. This set may not appeal to those who insist on a French-sung DON CARLO; it should appeal to everyone else!!
