When this recording was made in the late 60s, the wobble which afflicted Dame Gwyneth's voice in some of her later performances was almost non-existent. Indeed, the voice of Medea in this recording sounds fresh and fully under control with a gleaming top register which is quite thrilling (the lowest register was then, by contrast, not as strong as it later would become). While Dame Gwyneth's protrayal of Medea may not be as deeply etched as Callas's (Medea was, after all, one of Callas's most famous roles), there're lots of fire in her singing and she does pay considerable attention to the text. The supporting cast is mostly fine and I'm very pleased to hear Pilar Lorengar in the role of Glauce, her tone secure and very beautiful. Fiorenza Cossotto is a strong-voiced Neris and Justino Diaz a solid Creon. Bruno Prevedi's Jason is, however, just adequate. The playing of the orchestra under Gardelli also deserves praise. Given the paucity of recordings of the opera, this re-issue is most welcome. --- Vincent Lau, amazon.com
