5.0 out of 5 stars The very best version I have ever heard, Feb. 27 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The stage is not awesome, but the singers are. Often the role of Mime is neglected, but his voice goes to high pitch to deep. This Mime is perfect, I have four versions, the Robert Lepage, the newest and the worst on Blu Ray, Daniel Barenboim, with an old Siegfried Jerusalem and an acceptable Mime, the Zubin Mehta Blu Ray version, with a bad Mime and a bad Siegfried. Siegfried is a difficult opera, but some people don't know that apparently.

I recommend this version.

In Die Walkirie, Sigliende is Jessye Norman, one of the very best Wagner singers I have ever heard. James Levine is good... Not perfect, but still.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like too much Alban Berg, Jan. 21 2014
This review is from: Collection (Audio CD)
Teresa Stratas is good for Traviata, not for Lulu. Pierre Boulez tried to conduct so many things... Wagner, Stravinsky, Schönberg, Berg. I don't like his style. IMHO, Pierre Boulez is not a great conductor... There are many better versions in separate CDs... Christina Schäffer or Petibon are excellent Lulus. Their voices can reach the semitonal music written by Alban Berg. Teresa Stratass is not the good singer for it. Martin

3.0 out of 5 stars She is good singer, Jan. 21 2014
This review is from: Lulu (Audio CD)
For Traviata. She is not Lulu. We need another kind of singer for Lulu. She can't reach the required notes. It is a difficult opera indeed. Better versions are Christina Schaffer and Petibon, Pierre Boulez is not better. I have this version and i shurely won't recommend it to people I care for. Martin

Of course it is a reference book... It is hard to read it as a novel, it is not one. LOL

Happily, i bought the real thing, an Ipad. No comparison, this is a turtle. I thought it was good, but as my son always said "buy cheap, buy twice". I bought twice....

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought just the highlights. Siegmund is bad, Siegfried is ok.... The sound is bad.

Disapponted. I prefer the other 4 complete versions I have. Barenboim is one of the best recent recordings. Martin
