PAVAROTTI Puccini: Turandot – highlights

Zubin Mehta

“Sutherland gives an intensely revealing and appealing interpretation, making the icy princess far more human and sympathetic than ever before, while Pavarotti gives a performance equally imaginative, beautiful in sound, strong on detail. To set Caballé against Sutherland was a daring idea, and it works superbly well … Mehta directs a gloriously rich and dramatic performance, superlatively recorded, still the best-sounding Turandot on CD, while the reading also remains supreme.”
