Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This sprawling epic has a very fine cast, with Renata Tebaldi as an almost ideal Leonora, and the loud impressive del Monaco as the hero."
-- Michael Tanner, BBC Music Magazine

"[This] set has many virtues: there is a generally radiant and often purposeful performance of Leonora from Tebaldi, a fine Carlo from Bastianini, lively and cogent conducting of the tolerably proficient Santa Cecilia forces, and a recording that since its 1959 stereo reissue has always been notable for its general spaciousness and clarity."
-- Gramophone 1/1989
