Falstaff on DVD: Sir Georg Solti leads the Vienna Philharmonic in Verdi’s comic masterpiece. "The chief draw is Bacquier who was in exceptionally good voice. His voice has an ideally rich, dark timbre, virtually bass-baritone. He clearly enjoys the acting as well." (MusicWeb Dec 2005) "Solti obviously loved the score and recorded the opera three times, of which this is the second. He conducts with great energy and forcefulness, perhaps a little too much at times, though it’s undeniably exciting." (MusicWeb Dec 2005) This witty interpretation of Verdi’s light-hearted yet realist opera was directed by Götz Friedrich and filmed in the studio With the Vienna Philharmonic, the Chorus of the Vienna State Opera, and a strong cast of soloists, conductor Sir Georg Solti had all the ingredients in hand for one of the strongest Falstaff interpretations ever Gabriel Baquier stars as Falstaff with Richard Stilwell singing Ford – performances that make this DVD a must-have for every Verdi fan
