The idea of an "operatic" recording of this work is a bit like that of a "rock" version of a Bach cantata: wrong, wrong, wrong. Get the Barbarossa (#01302-2) recording, conducted by Theodorakis, sung by Maria Farandouri and Heiner Vogt, recorded live in Berlin in 1980; THAT'S the way C.G. is supposed to sound: filled with passion and a sense of coming from the hearts of the people.

A delight for the ear and a pleasure for the soul ... It is difficult to translate the feelings when listening this music. Theodorakis and P. Neruda achived with their composition "Canto General" a master piece. I recommend it to those who are searching for something really good. If you are planning this CD for a gift, don't do it without buying one for yourself.

I purchased two recordings of this. One was conducted by Theodorakis in 1980, the second was recorded by Frangiskos Voutsinos in 1989. Both were recorded in Berlin with the Rundfunkchor Berlin. I found the 1989 recording to be really better! It has superior sound and the performance is much more rhythmic with the performers being more involved and commited to an outstanding production. The 1989 recording has crystal clear sound with superior reproduction of the tenor soloist and superior choir. Both are good and the Voutsinos recording is outstanding!

I heard this on Boston's National Public Radio and knew immiediately that it was the work of genius. Neruda's poetry set to song! It's in Spanish, but even if one doesn't speak the language, the music is a language all it's own.
