La Favorita is, among Donizetti’s operas, the most difficult in terms of reference editions. In fact, besides the original French version, there are several in Italian. This high-quality edition from 1955 is one of the best recordings to date. Beyond the magical detail in the recording, this is one of the most beautiful discographic editions for its vocal and interpretative cast. Raimondi is here, caught in his best period; the voice color of mezzo-soprano Fedora Barbieri, the only one before Cossotto to play the role of Leonora; Carlo Tagliabue, the legendary baritone of the thirties; and finally Giuio Neric, a deep bass quite unusual in his time. All of these details make this version of Favorita a reference recording with an already small reference discography.
