A disclaimer: Just to get it done, I am reviewing Merry Christmas from Milan in mid-September in southwest Florida where the temperature is in the mid-90s.

I am glad I spent the $18 or $19 on Merry Christmas from Milan, if only for documentary purposes. The release date is 2008. Kultur's usual cheapness being in evidence, there are no program notes; ergo, I don't know when the actual event took place. Bear in mind that Montserrat Caballe turned 70 in 2003 and Renato Bruson turned 70 in 2006. Don't expect these two to sing like they did in the glory days. They share the stage with two very presentable young singers--Rossana Potenza and Montserrat Marti, two veteran conductors--Jose Collado and Ezio Rojatti, and a fine orchestra--Orchestra Filarmonica Italiana. It's worth the money.

Up front, I give 4 stars, because to give 3 would be to discourage the purchase of a decent program. The lack of program notes and a skimpy production notwithstanding, the DVD is worth having. If you don't want to buy it new, buy it used for less $$.

As of this recording, Renato Bruson, while no young buck, is still in decent voice. He has a few off-moments, but generally the intonation is good and he has maintained flexibility. There are no gimmicks, no excuses, no cover-ups. He delivers some good, solid and respectable work in his two solos and one duet with Montse. The interesting programming had Potenza's solo Ave Maria (Mascagni) immediately followed by Bruson's and Caballe's duet Ave Maria (Donizetti). Bruson's solos are Benedictus (Mascagni) and Tantum Ergo (Tosti). Bruson is in relatively advanced age for a performer, but he is a handsome old dude who knows how to put across a song.
