The final scene of Verdi´s famous opera Aida - the famous "Tomb scene" - performed by Montserrat Caballé and Plácido Domingo in their best. Recorded in 1974 with Riccardo Muti, New Philharmonia Orchestra. Both performers showed extraordinarily precise singing, that´s why this recording is being presented with the sheet music, for listeners to compare the singing with the partiture. Here is the pick from one of the reviews of this wonderful recording:

"The qualifying factor that makes this THE Aida recording is the contribution of Montserrat Caballe in the title role. Note after note and phrase after phrase of unsurpassed and unparalled beauty pour forth from her voice of molten gold as she delivers her reading of the role. From the arias, "Ritorna vincitor" and "O patria mia" to the final duet "O terra addio", Caballe enchants and entrances with her innate musicality and technical prowess. What puts the icing on the cake for this recording is "O terra addio", where Caballe and Domingo cement the duet that remains unrivalled to date. Indeed, this is singing of the highest order and on the highest plane. Domingo is every inch the ideal Radames, with his rich and resplendent voice. He is at once both heroic and sensitive. Cossoto's Amneris must be the most realistically vindictive. Her voice strong and supple, she effortlessly navigates the treacherous reaches of the role's tessitura."
