Format: Audio CD
That's Verdi, not Sir John Falstaff. It was Shaw's tribute to the octogenarian prodigy, said admiringly while he still hankered after his beloved composer of Trovatore and Un Ballo. Believe if you like what Verdi said about Falstaff being written for himself. He was one for putting up smokescreens such as his claim to be unlearned, he was still developing as a composer at age 80, he knew Falstaff would baffle most of its early audiences (I doubt that Shaw ever really got the hang of it), but the idea of Verdi in an ivory tower without a thought of applause in the opera-house does not come to me at all.

This reissue is admirable in every respect, but be aware that at this price no full libretto is included. Unless you know the work by heart, a full libretto is an absolute essential, and if you are new to the piece I strongly recommend becoming thoroughly familiar with the libretto before you listen to a note. Not only is it one of the best, cleverest and subtlest libretti ever, the action is complex and moves at a scorching pace, and unless you know exactly where you are you will miss not only the intricacies of the plot but the mandarin refinement of the music. The vocal style is lyrical throughout with no suggestion of recitative, but it rarely slows down sufficiently to be lyrical in a sustained way (and then mainly in the last act), and the mistaken impression can be gained that Falstaff lacks melody. Nor has the aged athlete lost his sheer physical power, and for all the quicksilver delicacy of much of the orchestration you will still hear, at the end of the scenes and in the orchestral refrain at `Va, vecchio John', the kind of Verdian orchestral writing that Shaw called, not unfairly and not in any critical sense, `brutal'.

David Bryson's review of this great recording emphasizes the need to have the libretto in hand when listening to Falstaff. This Karajan/EMI Falstaff issue comes without a printed libretto--but the EMI website does provide the complete Italian text for this issue along with English, French, and German translations, in PDF format. I've hesitated to print a copy, however, because it runs to 228 pages.
This same recording is also available in a 1999 EMI "Great Recordings of the Century" (GRC) series at somewhat higher cost, but in a deluxe packaging including a 278-page booklet with the Italian libretto and German, English and French translations. This 1999 GRC release carries catalog number EMI 7243 5 67162 2 3. I believe the 2007 release contains the same remastering as the 1999 GRC release---but comes with no libretto.
