 Most Excellent Recording September 13, 2012 By Carl P Nordmark (Northfield, NH) See All My Reviews "There is a night and day difference in this recording and the other one offered by Arkiv. It is well worth the extra $15 you pay for it. You will hear Callas in all her majestry, as well as all of the other gifted singers. The fidelity is excellent throughout the recording. The other recording, everything sounds muffled, and distorted at times." Report Abuse
