5.0 out of 5 stars This is a live recording from June 1959 November 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
and the sound quality is not perfect, but the problem is principally in the orchestral sound, not so much the vocal. In fact, the voices are bright, upfront, close, and wonderfully audible. For listeners interested in embellishments, alternates, cadenzas, and trills, these singers--Joan Sutherland, Janet Baker, Margreta Elkins, Patricia Kern, Raymond Herincx, and Alfred Hallett--do not disappoint.
The overture on this version may make my hair stand on end because the recording speed renders it out of tune, but this RODELINDA gets 5 stars from me because the singing is wonderfully true and dramatic and moving. If you've heard the excerpts of RODELINDA that are included in the Opera D'Oro recital album AN EVENING WITH JOAN SUTHERLAND, those are from this recording. This RODELINDA is sung in English, and wait until you hear Joan Sutherland's crisp articulation and ardor in the recitative. Not to mention that Janet Baker is here, as always, a revelation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Listenable, pleasant recording December 7, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I found this recording quite pleasant and listenable, especially for the contribution of Janet Baker. The sound quality is not great, but it is about average for "live" recordings from the 1950's. I am glad to have the recording, and I think that it is well worth the low price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable August 12, 2006
By E. Gal
Format:Audio CD
Sure, this recording has some problems but, oh my goodness, Sutherland can sing. The freshness of her articulation and dramatic control make one shiver with pleasure. The final aria is breathtaking. Especially since the voices are so fresh and clear, this album is worth having. Fleming's recordings of this opera are great but they sound dull and somehow varnished compared to this one.

Note: the english, although incorrect, makes this opera a good one for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars a beatiful recording December 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
i think, given the recording circumstances,that is an excellent version ,altough not in the original language, of this handel masterpiece.the singers are in splendid voice, even if the orchestra sounds out of tune sometimes.But we must not forget that in that kind of opera the singers were the principal actors,and in this Rodelinda how the sing!by the price ,it is a gift for the true opera lover.

1.0 out of 5 stars avoid at all costs January 16, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A historical recording it may be, but impossible to listen to. It sounds as if recorded on a home reel- reel tape recorder, complete with variable tape speed.I felt physically ill after listening to it because of the technical problems, the only dud I've bought frm Amazon
