Daily Telegraph, London
Claudio Abbado made his debut in 1960, at the Teatro alla Scala in his home city of Milan, and was music director there from ... Read more in Amazon's Claudio Abbado Store

Format: Audio CD
This edition of Aida was formerly on 3 cd's and sold for about $50.00 dollars but now it has been put on two cd's and sells for bargain price.
There is no libretto included but there is a detailed track by track synopsis.
The booklet inside is sparse with no photos and you will only find the track details and a listing of the characters/vocalists with a final page devoted to recording information.
This production was recorded in digital stereo in the early 80's but no remastering has been done.
The sound is PRETTY GOOD with a little congestion in the louder passages and lacking somewhat in presence.
I personally didn't feel the great sense of atmosphere or splendour that i felt with the Decca Karajan version and Abbado conducts with attention to detail but could use more dramatic bite and emotional abandon in CERTAIN moments.
Abbado's conducting is not VERY passionate and is a little more on the intellectual side.
I would have found the orchestral aspect a lot more compelling and affecting if Abbado could have loosened up a bit more but he does have his moments.
Domingo is in his best voice technically and he handles the characterization of Radames passionately and effectively.
Ricciarelli is a vocalist i have always liked especially in lighter roles such as Mimi in "La Boheme" but she has moments of strain and impure tone in her performance as Aida.
It is a role that is very hard on her at times and when she has to hit those testy high notes like in "O patria mia" she sounds very strained,thinned out,and pitchy.
It's painful to hear because she handles the characterization so well with extremely eloquent phrasing giving a lot of meaning and passion to the words that she is singing.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Santa Fe Listener HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on February 7, 2007
Format: Audio CD
Claudio Abbado, who I believe was head of La Scala when this Aida was made, is capable of exciting Verdi readings, but this isn't one of them. I don't know if he was trying to make the score sound less like a warhorse by smoothing it out and reducing the melodrama, but Aida isn't really a warhorse: it's a masterpiece that deserves total passion and commitment. His staid tempos and underpowered climaxes frustrated me from beginning ot end.

As for the singing, Domingo was much more powerful in hhis two other studio recordings opposite Leontyne Price for RCA and Monserrat Caballe for EMI. Here he seems to have been subdued by Abbado's understated interpreatation. As Aida, Katia Ricciarelli is severely over-parted. She was a fill-in during the years when no credible dramatic sopranos were at hand, and therefore she landed roles like Tosca, Turandot, and this Aida that closest placement of the microphone can't make convincing. Her tone wobbles severely in climaxes, although I must admit that she tries to inject genuine dramatic fervor into her phrasing.

By contrast, Obraztsova chews up the scenery as Amneris and has a clotted Slavic vocal tone that doesn't suit Verdi. The La Scala orhcestra and chorus sound less than enthusiastic. In sum, a big disappointment and one of the least convincing Aidas ever to emerge from a major label.

I heard this record.

Domingo is in great voice, and Abbado is just amazing. This opera certainly requires great orchestration, and Abbado just makes it happen. Unlike Muti who is way too rushed, and von Karajan who is too stiff, Abbado strikes a perfect balance;flexible, dramatic, well-paced,intellectual-he just makes the opera sing.

If you want great singing, the Tebaldi/Bergonzi is the best I've heard. But this one is the best overall.

Thank you Claudio.

Deutsche Gramophpn hit a winner with this re-release of a 1982 recording featuring Katia Ricciarelli singing Aida and Placido Domingo singing Radames. From the smooth opening prelude by the Cora e Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala, under the direction of Claudio Abbado to the final Gloria all'Egitto, the cast and orchestra strike a prefect balance between voice and instrument in a performance that is spellbinding. It takes no time to warm up here, and the welcome is rich, indeed, as Placido Domingo eases us into the passion of Rademes early on in a truly spectacular Se Quel guerrier io fossi! The singing here from the entire cast is even and easy, and the delivery is balanced. Each singer is comfortably within his and her range and matched in temperament, and this matching is evident from song to song, and none more so than the trio Terzetto: Vieni, o diletta, apressati, sung by Elena Obraztsova (Amneris), Ricciarelli and Domingo. The tendancy to "shout" one's role can be a killer for singers and this reviewer has commented on that tendency in the past. There is none of that here, which is why this CD comes so strongly recommended. The quality of the CD remaster is superb and the accompanying booklet, while not as complete as I would have preferred - no introduction, no bios, no historical facts -- is adequate as far as it describes what is occurring during each song.
