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. "Price, the supreme Verdi soprano of her time," declared the BBC Music Magazine, "is unsurpassed as Aida ... [with] Domingo and Milnes on top form and Grace Bumbry as a formidable Amneris." Gramophone also lauded Leinsdorf's contribution: "He catches the grandeur of the public scenes, the delicacy of the intimate ones and carefully judges the weight and pace of each scene.".
