Format: Audio CD
This BBC recording comes from a concert recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall in 1983, during Jesús López-Cobos' tenure as Principal Guest Conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. It is by no means negligible as an account, but there are literally scores of recordings of this master-work and many are more recommendable than this despite its merits.

There is no doubting the energy, commitment and professionalism of the London Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra; both are superb. López-Cobos has never been the most innovative or adventurous of conductors and he directs a competent and unexceptional performance here which belongs in the reverential, devotional camp; turning to really inspirational conductors like Bernstein or Toscanini will reveal what is missing if you prefer a more urgent, Dante-esque scenario. This performance is around five minutes longer than more dramatic accounts, although there is plenty of weight in the supplicatory sections and the pace lifts nicely in the "Quam olim Abrahae" - always a key moment for me.

Interest for most listeners will centre upon the team of soloists here assembled. While admiring so much of what Margaret Price does I cannot help feeling that hers is not an ideal Verdi voice: too slim and fluty to fill out those soaring lines amply and somewhat taxed by the expose B flats which she gamely nails rather than floats - yet she is one of a minority of sopranos who succeed in sounding genuinely terrified in the "Libera me", even if she is none too steady in the "Lacrimosa".
