This is a great bargain from Opera d'oro and it is in very fine sound considering the 1962 air check. The performance brims with high spirits by an excellent Italian cast. Rossi conducts well but there are a few glaring ensemble problems inherent in live recordings.
Renata Tebaldi never recorded Alice commercially. She is a delightful comedienne and in wonderful voice here. This is by far the best of her Falstaff recordings and if you love her voice as I do, you must have this performance. Gobbi is full of fun if a bit crude and prone to shouting at times. A huge bonus is the young Mirella Freni as Nannetta in radiant voice with beautifully floated high notes. Capecchi is a great Ford and Lazzari a sweet voiced Fenton. And Feodora Barbieri makes a meal of Quickly.
At the Opera d'oro price, this is a steal. My own favorite Falstaff recording is Solti's commercial release with Geraint Evans. This CD would be an excellent addition to any serious opera collection and gives us Tebaldi's Alice Ford in very listenable sound!!!

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By L. E. Cantrell VINE VOICE on July 15, 2008
Format: Audio CD
SOURCE:
Live performance in Naples, December 1, 1962.

SOUND:
This is a mono air check As such, it's not bad. It reproduces the voices fairly well but does not, of course, do full justice to the orchestral details. Overall, it strikes me as acceptable, if not much more.

CAST:
Falstaff (a fat, old force of nature, recently betrayed by the new, young king and currently fallen on hard times) - Tito Gobbi (baritone)
Alice Ford, one of the women of the Town of Windsor, an object of Falstaff's designs - Renata Tebaldi (soprano)
Ford, Alice's short-tempered, jealous husband who is conveniently absent from his house every day from two until three - Renato Capecchi (baritone)
Nannetta Ford, his daughter [Shakespeare's Anne Page] - Mirella Freni (soprano)
Fenton, a young man in love with Nannetta but regarded as an unsuitable son-in-law by her parents - Agostino Lazzari (tenor)
Dame Quickly, a woman of Windsor and an unmatched go-between - Fedora Barbieri (mezzo-soprano)
Meg Page, another woman of Windsor, another object of Falstaff's designs - Fernanda Cadoni (mezzo-soprano)
Dr. Caius, a victim of one of Falstaff's earlier schemes and highly unhappy about it - Vittorio Pandano (tenor)
Bardolfo, one of Falstaff's unreliable henchmen - Renato Ercolani (tenor)
Pistola, another unreliable henchman - Enrico Campi (bass-baritone)

CONDUCTOR:
Mario Rossi with the Orchestra and Chorus of Teatro San Carlo, Naples.

DOCUMENTATION:
Usual Od'O bargain package: no libretto. Brief essay on the opera. Short summary of the plot. Track list.

COMMENTARY:
"Falstaff" was the final work of the Grand Old Man of Italian opera.

It's the answer to a prayer: Tito Gobbi as Falstaff, WITHOUT the nasty overtinselled-operetta-robot! (As Mr. Spock said, "'Herbert' was a minor official, notorious for his rigid and limited patterns of thought!") The conductor here, Mario Rossi, performs with feeling, and loses precision just often enough to remind you it's live.

I love Rolando Panerai as much as anyone, but it's nice to hear someone else perform as Ford from time to time! (How many times did Panerai record the role--four???) Here we have the versatile Renato Capecchi, a little more subject than Panerai to the trials of the part, but singing well and acting manfully.

Mirella Freni sings in her light-mode here (she also has heavy-mode, as in her performances as Elisabetta in DON CARLO) and she's very nice. Fedora Barbieri is fine as always, deep and earthy, and Renata Tebaldi brings fine musicality, acting, and celebrity-power as Alice Ford.

It's not a five-star performance, but it sure is nice to be able to listen to Gobbi.
