Description
This recital broadcast on Swiss television in 1985 marked a rare joint appearance by these two Italian stars of the opera world. Highlights inlude two great Puccini arias for soprano ("Vissi d'arte" and "O mio babbino caro") as well as Leporello's catalog aria and the duet "La ci darem la mano" from Mozart's Don Giovanni.

"With a modest nod to the audience, Siepi begins with a tasty rare morsel, Jupiter's berceuse from Gounod's Philemon et Baucis. There can't be many bass arias as light and tuneful as this…. Freni follows with Margherita's prison solo from Boito's Mefistofele. The singer's innate sweetness and vulnerability make this an especially successful aria for her…. Siepi turns to Verdi for Fiesco's 'Il lacerato spirito' from Simon Boccanegra and the great Filippo II scene from Don Carlos…. Freni took on the role of Don Carlos's Elisabetta around this time, and she manages the supremely challenging 'Tu che le vanita' very well."—Opera Today
