This performance from the 1950s sounds surprising after decades of authentic performance. The instruments are modern, the forces large and the style of singing rich, full and almost romantic. Yet the effect is electrifying. All the performers sing with such conviction that this Poppea moved me and it makes some authentic performances sound thin and academic by comparison. Despite its age, the quality of the recording is good and the singing has presence.
