This Aida, as notable for its finesse as for its splendor, launched Riccardo Muti's recording career in 1974 and has set a formidable standard ever since. No composer is closer than Verdi to Muti's heart, and the conductor's passion and integrity inspire a cast led by five of the greatest Verdi singers of their time, all at the height of their powers.
