Description

Beverly Sill, soprano; Florence Kopleff, contralto/ University of Utah Civic Chorale/ Utah Symphony Orchestra
Taped within the near-perfect acoustics of the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City in 1967, this magnificent recording features two of the greatest operatic voices America has ever produced. Beverly Sills and Florence Kopleff, truly both virtuosos in their own right, join conductor Maurice Abravanel, whose understanding and sympathy of Mahler, comes close to the composer’s original intent, garnering his own personal glowing reviews and stature worldwide. Transferred from the Vanguard original 3-track master tapes, this is one to have for both it’s sound quality and moving, emotional performance.
