Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Cesare Siepi is a sexy, smooth Don, Fernando Corena a delightful (if not very deep) Leporello, and Cesare Valletti is an absolutely perfect Ottavio. Leontyne Price's Elvira is handsomely sung, and Birgit Nilsson is a powerful if sometimes graceless Anna"

--Robert Levine, ClassicsToday.com
