Guiseppe Verdi

Otello (highlights)

Mario del Monaco, Giovanni Martinelli, Jon Vickers, Giovanni Zenatello, Enrico Caruso, Ramon Vinay (Otello); Lawrence Tibbett, Tito Gobbi, Titta Ruffo (Iago); Renata Tebaldi, Eleanor Steber, Rosa Ponselle, Elisabeth Rethberg and Leonie Rysanek (Desdemona)

Over 77 minutes of operatic history here as Magdalen celebrates Verdi’s bicentenary with highlights from surely his greatest work Otello, first produced at La Scala, Milan on 5 February 1887.

The set features carefully chosen selections performed by many of the most famous interpreters recorded between 1914 and 1961. Several lengthy extracts are taken from studio recordings, others from live performances and the remainder from classic 78s.

Among the singers are Mario del Monaco, Giovanni Martinelli, Jon Vickers, Giovanni Zenatello, Enrico Caruso, Ramon Vinay (Otello); Lawrence Tibbett, Tito Gobbi, Titta Ruffo (Iago); Renata Tebaldi, Eleanor Steber, Rosa Ponselle, Elisabeth Rethberg and Leonie Rysanek (Desdemona). The conductors include Toscanini, Karajan, Panizza and Serafin.

Almost all items were given top recommendations in Alan Blyth’s Opera on Record (Hutchinson 1979), still regarded as the ‘bible’ for collectors of operatic recordings.
