Orchestra del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma / Sir Georg Solti

Includes repertoire notes by William Weaver and an essay on the recording and Decca’s use of spatial effects by Richard Mohr

Solti motivates his account of Verdi's score with thrilling dynamism, fully displaying the music's grandeur and depth as well as deriving considerable refinement from his Roman forces. His cast is led by Leontyne Price, the Aida of her generation, her enriched soprano fleshing out the title role with heady sensuality.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE, 2013

Leontyne Price had a gift for fusing voice, words and meaning, and was even able to adapt her vocal colours to her conductor. . . She had the voice of velvet, used it with wisdom and artistry for 50 years, and set vocal and theatrical standards in Verdi” GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE

Decca, THE Opera Company, has always invested infinite energy and enormous care in its productions, pairing unrivalled casts with its unequalled technical skill and legendary sound. Decca Classics is proud to continue its Hardback Opera Series of go-to performances incorporating true 24-bit audio with two reference recordings of R. Strauss with casts led by Birgit Nilsson and also Leontyne Price’s legendary recording of Verdi’s Aida – all three performances are conducted by Sir Georg Solti
