Carmen by Georges Bizet( )

105 editions published between 1959 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 1,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta versión de Carmen, es sin duda alguna maravilla. Las cualidades vocales de MVictoria de los Angeles, así como la interpretación desarrollada, la dirección orquestal y coral logradas, no son fáciles de encontrar en registros actuales. Por tanto es la mejor forma de conocer a Carmen. Como Carmen, Victoria De Los Ángeles da a oyente un cuadro claro de una mujer que sabe lo que desea y no tiene que gritar para conseguirlo. Ella tiene una voz excelente y se supera en una apasionada escena de muerte. Nicolai Gedda ofrece un magnífico Don José ; él es uno de los pocos tenores que canta el dúo con Micaela con verdadera dulzura
