Sony Classical is delighted to offer lovers of singing another ten complete recordings from the RCA Red Seal, CBS/Sony Classical and Eurodisc catalogues. The latest instalment of this wide-ranging series not only features some of the greatest voices of the last century but also spotlights once popular works that have been unduly neglected in recent times. At the Metropolitan in the second half of the last century, the core Italian repertoire was dominated by a formidable triumvirate of stars: soprano Leontyne Price, tenor Placido Domingo and baritone Sherrill Milnes. Two of their most memorable recordings were set down by RCA in London in the early 1970s, both conducted by Erich Leinsdorf. From Verdi to Puccini, and an "intense and searching" performance of Il tabarro (Gramophone). "A welcome issue of a superb work." Penguin Guide reported: "Price is fully in character, Milnes sings memorably, Domingo makes a fresh-voice bargee, while Leinsdorf is at his most sympathetic.".
