Eine Knaller am Sonntag Mittag - von Anfang an:!!
Zitat aus einer Amazon Rezension - der ich mich ganz einfach nur anschließen möchte:
"In 1968 EMI recorded an "Otello" that I've always rated very highly. James McCracken has the ideal Otello voice and Gwyneth Jones gives one of her finest recorded performances as Desdemona. My favourite baritone Dietrich Fisher-Dieskau is a sinister Iago and it is amazing how he adapts his voice over to a different tone for Italian opera. Sir John Barbirolli conducts the New Philharmonia Orchestra superbly and special mention must be made of the Ambrosian Opera Chorus who are involved a great deal in this opera - They are simply fantastic!!!!!!!!! - The re-mastering of the 1968 recording is amazing and EMI Classics are to be congratulated in making this version of "Otello" available once again. BRAVO TO ALL CONCERNED!!!!"
