MOZART Idomeneo Levine 4477372
Starring Domingo's magnificent, wounded lion of an Idomeneo, this performance combines monumentality with a powerful dramatic thrust . . . Cecilia Bartoli as the most impassioned and volatile Idamante on disc (no one rivals her subtle colouring of Italian words), and Thomas Hampson [live up to their billing] . . . [on Domingo]: bronzed splendor tone an profound identification with Idomeneo's plight . . .
