Mike Ashman
Gramophone, April 2012

VERDI, G.: Traviata (La) (Graz Opera, 2011) (NTSC) 101587
VERDI, G.: Traviata (La) (Graz Opera, 2011) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) 108036

the Graz version feels like a return to authentic original instrument practices. Director Konwitschny remembers that Verdi wanted the show set in modern dress and that only the Zeffirellis of this world think that Flora’s party is a ballet. Marlis Petersen…James Rutherford…and Italian tenor Giuseppe Varano…are intensely involved and in good vocal shape. Tecwyn Evans conducts with great rhythmic acuity and finds pace and tension without rushing or becoming unduly loud. An outstanding issue and a quite draining experience. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
