When it comes to bargain classical, Naxos rarely dissapoints me. Nowhere is it this more true then in sets like this one. As one of Verdi's last works, and his most developed, Falstaff requires a certain amount of talent to pull off. That said, while this recording may lack the star name recognition of Falstaff recordings on other labels, the talent is most definitely there. All of the musicians perform competently throughout, and the audio quality is amazingly good for such a low price set.
Those looking for more star power may want to look for a Falstaff on another label; however, for those looking for a decent recording at a great price, this set is a winner.
