Verdi leads us back into the land of the fully living with luisa miller. The village girl’s pathos was perhaps more ideally suited for Caballé, who recorded it for Decca, but here’s Aprile Millo in best form before the golden voice began to buckle under pressure. This is another of those vintage Met ensembles vividly guided by Levine, with Vladimir Chernov especially affecting in the father-daughter duet. David Nice
