Quite possibly the definitive studio recording of Verdi’s opera masterpiece, this stunning performance, brilliantly conducted by Kleiber, features multiple Grammy®-winning tenor Plácido Domingo and the legendary soprano Ileana Cotrubaş. Originally recorded in 1977, this new high-definition release lends an unheard clarity to this already essential recording.

“Kleiber, the great Berlin-born conductor, finds a happy medium in his splendid “Traviata,” with Ileana Cotrubas as Violetta and Plácido Domingo as Alfredo, both superb. His tempo for “Un dì felice” has a gentle gait, a bit slower than Toscanini’s. The restraint allows the singers a little more room to stretch and bend the lines. As the voices blend during the final phrases, they sing with delectable pianissimo tenderness, especially Mr. Domingo’s.” –Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

Cotrubas’s peculiarly plaintive, vibrating timbre and highly individual nuances seem to me perfectly fitted to the part. To those she here adds a sense of involvement and of spontaneity that suggests a live portrayal more palpably than any other on disc … Kleiber gives the score a Toscanini-like sense of dramatic purpose and impending doom, without being quite as strict with his singers … I have no hesitation in recommending this brand-new DG set, which is easily the most warmly recorded of any … still difficult to beat when it comes to studio recordings in (good) stereo sound … a ‘classic’ in its own right.” –Gramophone
