Description
"Everything in this world is a joke," says Falstaff, and these words are embodied by Ambrogio Maestri, one of the finest Falstaffs of our time. The Italian baritone brings a versatile voice to the role, as well as a hilarious, buffo quality. With a boisterous production by Sven-Eric Bechtolf, Verdi's comedy of human foibles and follies becomes a fireworks display of high spirits the Neue Zürcher Zeitung called "musically and dramaturgically a feast of life and of love of life."

"Maestri is of course an experienced hand in this role, having recorded a previous DVD version 11 years before at La Scala under Riccardo Muti…. He has the role down pat…. The same can also be said of Barbara Frittoli as Alice Ford…. Gatti … has a superb grasp of the score and brings every bar to effervescent life."—Fanfare
