Renata Scotto shows an amazing flexibility and control. Her Caro nome is one to be heard many times. She reaches a high D and decrescendo's to an incredible ppp. I felt the aria drug a little in tempo, but the gorgeous sound more than made up for it.
As Rigoletto, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau has the vocal power demanded by the score. Too often he sounded as if he was delivering a recital of Leider. A smooth velvet sound was his mark throughout. In his duets with Gilda, this payed off handsomely. Even in his dealings with the courtiers after Gilda's abduction he showed us a rarely seen Dietrich blustery side. He picked up some of the visciousness for the final duet in the second act but the majority was too good to be true. Everywhere but his dealings with Gilda requires harsh almost crude sounds in keeping with his general character. Fischer-Dieskau gave a very solid performance.
Carlo Bergonzi has a wonderful tenor although at times a little excessive on the vibrato. He captured the care-free nature of the Duke to an exact measure. At the end of Addio, speranza ed anima he ended it in a high D. This D is one of the most resonant vibrant notes ever captured on a recording. It is not that strong, but the quality is great.
Fiorenzo Cossotto made a formidable match for Sparafucile as sung by Ivo Vinco. The comprimario roles were well handled. The chorus and orchestra well directed. Kubelík kept a firm pace throughout.
