Giuseppe Verdi, various
2 CD's, Naxos

Hmmmm, interesting. Nowhere on the cover does it say who actually sang or performed in the orchestra. And nowhere in the notes either. There are references to the CD's of the full recordings but I don't imagine anyone will be bothered to do that.

The songs, everything from Rigoletto to Aida, are not badly performed at all, and are nothing to be ashamed of and the main voices will sound quite familiar. Is there a new market out there for people who don't care who's performing? Hmmmm, again. (Baron K)
