Notes and Editorial Reviews

The thrill of a true Italian tenor, once commonplace, now almost a rarity: Ziliani, a romantic lyric tenor, a lighter (and less distinguished) Lauri-Volpi, is heard here in his prime and is well worth the investment. Check, though, that you don’t already have the LP (Rococo 5288), the contents of which are identical.'

-- Gramophone 11/1998
