CLASSICAL MUSIC
“Leontyne Price at the Met”
In her two and a half decades at the Metropolitan Opera, the soprano Leontyne Price brought lyrical splendor to the heroines of Giuseppe Verdi, with singing that radiated densely packed colors. The Met celebrates the ninety-three-year-old’s career with a two-disk compilation of live excerpts, from a fresh-voiced “Il Trovatore,” in 1961, to her farewell in “Aida,” in 1985. Price’s timbre is swathed in an impenetrable glow that transcends the limitations of recording technology. There’s a voluptuous Donna Anna in “Don Giovanni,” a romantic “Tosca,” a powerfully acrobatic “Ernani,” and an especially ravishing “Trovatore,” from 1969. The album closes, of necessity, with “O patria mia,” from her final “Aida,” a rendition that received raucous applause thirty-five years ago and consecrated one of the Met’s great legacies.
