Recording of the Month: Verdi Aida

Antonio Pappano conducts an all-star cast in Verdi's Aida

Verdi's Aida



A studio recording of a Verdi opera by a major label is a rarity nowadays. But Antonio Pappano has brought together an all-star cast, headed up by soprano Anja Harteros and tenor Jonas Kaufmann, for this project with his Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia orchestra. It's our November 2015 Recording of the Month, and in this podcast you can find out more about the piece and project, as well as hear clips from the disc.
