Alan Swanson
Fanfare, November 2006

Robert Abbado brings much more urgency and nuance to the whole, and his orchestra is better. Eva Mei’s Giulietta is sweet-voiced and, perhaps, a bit passive but Vessalina Kasarova’s Romeo makes a wonderful noise, though I think it is not automatically to be preferred to Polito’s. On the other hand, a mezzo does bring a clearer definition to the duets and the whole recording quality is better. © 2006 Fanfare Read complete review
