Georg Solti, a great conductor born in Hungary, recorded Falstaff in the 1990s as well, but the singers of this 1963 recording remain unmatched and their overwhelming interpretation is the original version. The wonderful sound by Decca at that time vividly conveys Solti’s accurate interpretation.

History

Giuseppe Verdi’s Falstaff

Verdi's final opera, and the third of his stage works to be based on a Shakespeare play, premiered at Milan’s La Scala in 1893, a triumphal success for the almost 80-year-old composer. Baritone Victor Maurel, who sang the title role, reprised his performance in the opera’s U.S. premiere at the Met two years later. In the 2013–14 season, Music Director James Levine conducts a new production directed by Robert Carsen, the first new Met Falstaff since 1964.
