This is the best La Boheme recording I've ever heard and maybe one of the best opera recordings I've ever heard. The cast is perfect - Cotrubas singing beautifully and deftly handling all the complexities that most forget to bring to the role of Mimi. Pavarotti in his prime. Is there a better Marcello than Cappuccilli? Popp's seductively coy Musetta.

But the star here is Carlos Kleiber. Puccini writes his operas with the voice being interwoven into the orchestral texture. This means an extra careful attention to balance and color between the singers and the orchestra and of course, the orchestra must step up and not play a subservient role to the singers. The conductor is ultimately responsible for this and Kleiber succeeds here like no other has before or since.

This performance is electrifying, incredibly imaginative and inspired in terms of musicianship, and the chemistry between all the performers is quite amazing. Look past the fact that this is a live recording without the most ideal sound. This is something quite special.

Aparece esta economica "Boheme" 'live' en Milán del año 1979 y debemos quitarnos el sombrero ante ella, empezando por la magnifica direccion que realiza CARLOS KLEIBER, pero tambien se cuenta con un cast de verdaderas estrellas: LUCIANO PAVAROTTI, un Rodolfo sensible, de bella voz y agudos potentes; ILEANA COTRUBAS, una Mimi de bellisima voz y segura en toda la tesitura (bellisima su 'Si, mi chiamano Mimi'); PIERO CAPUCCILLI, simplemente un lujo como Marcello; LUCIA POPP una Musetta comica y con unos agudos formidables (de las mejores Musettas que se hayan grabado) y un EUVGENI NESTERENKO que ofrece uno de los mejores Colline de la discografia. Los secundarios de este amplio reparto cumplen muy bien sus cometidos, el publico aplaude como loco tras cada aria, y nos encontramos ante el testimonio de lo que fue una noche magica de opera. De compra obligada.
