iTunes Review

Since the beginning of Placido Domingo‘s celebrated career—which now spans over five decades—the dramatic tenor has forged a strong relationship with the work of Italian composer Guiseppe Verdi. Following performances of numerous Verdi roles (including with the Royal Opera in London and the Metropolitan Opera in New York), Domingo reveals his versatility on this, his first-ever album of baritone arias. Taken from a list of Verdi’s best operas including Macbeth, Rigoletto, Un Ballo in Maschera and La Traviata, the album simultaneously offers an opportunity for Domingo to explore new characters and of his ability as a singer.

Customer Reviews

Domingo as a Verdian Baritone.

Placido has had an amazing career and no one say otherwise. He's been able to take on 140+ roles in not only the standard repertoire but new and obscure works as well.

This album is his last segment of his illustrious career and his jump primarily into Verdian Baritone roles. I was able to see him in Traviata as Germont and he definitely brings a new color into the his Verdi roles. Not harsh and strong but lonely and helpless.

Said that, this album may not be for everyone. Stay away if you want a new Verdi Baritone cd but pick it up if you want to hear a new spin on the classics.

If your tempted to hear more before you plunge in, hear his Rigoletto's "Cortigianni..."

A real renaissance man

Bravo maestro!!!
A tenor, conductor and a baritone. A jack of all trades...
