"Solti motivates his account of Verdi's score with thrilling dynamism, fully displaying the music's grandeur and depth ... His cast is led by Leontyne Price, the Aida of her generation." - BBC Music Magazine
"Sir Georg Solti's Aida is one I always return to with keen anticipation ... a very distinguished recording." - Gramophone
The singing is consistently superb. A young Leontyne Price showed clearly why this would become the signature role of her long career.Features:
