There is only one studio recording available of Donizetti's La Favorita (Italian version, not the original French language La Favorite) This is a bravura role for Luciano Pavarotti who's voice is certainly at its best here singing the role of Fernando, repertoire that could have been written just for him. The high C's and C#'s are exquisite here. He truly seems to know what he is singing about for this recording and his performance comes accross as very believable because of it. Fiorenza Cossotto is especially moving in her role as the "the favorite," Leonora. I found it unfortunate that she was not in better voice for the first act of this recording. Very disturbing was the love duet with Pavarotti. Ms. Cossotto was very wobbly and flat. In fact, at the end of the duet, (which is a definitive moment in the plot of the opera) Donizetti calls for the star tenor and mezzo-soprano to produce a lavish and sustained high C. Pavarotti's C is ample, well placed, and quite in tune, but Ms. Cossotto's C is extremely flat and ugly, especially considering there are two singers singing the same note at the same time, making her bad note sound even worse next to her partner's perfect note! I do not know why Maestro Richard Bonynge would not have asked for another take of the duet. Fortunately, she sounds much better for the remainder of the recording. I find it very strange! The rest of the cast, including Ileana Cotrubas, Gabriel Bacquier, and Nicolai Ghiaurov, are superb, and overall one could only hope that the only available studio recording of this opera in its Italian version would be so great. I highly reccomend the French version, La Favorite, recorded with Ramon Vargas and Veselina Kassarova. (I believe this is the only French version studio recording as well, and this opera has such beautiful music you will want both!) --- RAWoFFtheWaLL "Workman" (Williamsport, PA USA)
