Verdi: Falstaff

Add To Wish List + £19.99 - Item is discontinued.

Carlo Maria Giulini was one of the 20th century's greatest conductors along with fellow Italians Arturo Toscanini, Guido Cantelli and Victor de Sabata. His live performances of operas by Verdi, Rossini and Mozart have acquired legendary status while his distinguished recordings have remained in the catalogues to this day. The recording featuring a Glyndebourne production of Verdi's Falstaff given in 1955 at the Edinburgh Festival is unique since after extensive research, it has never been published before in any form.

This 1955 performance marked Giulini's UK debut. The Times said, 'in the final analysis, it was Mr Giulini's direction which ensured the opera's success', and headlined the review by emphatically stating, 'A wonderful production'.

"Mr Corena's Falstaff is admirable because it is creditable ... he gave us immense dignity, clarity of word, tone, line, and dramatic authority". The Times
