Now 40 years old, both sets - Pagliacci and Il Tabarro - present four great artists at their absolute youthful peak conducted by experienced conductors directing excellent orchestras and, in the case of "I Pagliacci", a superb choir.
Leinsdorf is skilled, flexible and expressive in Il Tabarro; he negotiates sensitively the swiftly alternating moods of this dark little melodrama and this responsiveness is neatly complemented by some judicious sound effects such as the tug-boat horns so that the mood-painting this opera requires emerges effectively. Both leading ladies are in prime voice, Price smokily seductive as the unhappy Giorgetta, Caballe floating ravishing top notes and delineating Nedda's desperate rebelliousness with unfailing vividness. Domingo is in sappiest, most youthful voice and Milnes darkly brooding in both roles - he always did festering menace rather well yet the voice per se remains smoothly burnished and beautiful.
