Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of the most popular and beloved operas of all time, La Boheme is presented in the legendary recording from Rome in 1959. Tebaldi is as stellar as ever, recorded in her prime, as are the stupendous Bergonzi, D’Angelo, and Ettore Bastianini. A must-have for collectors and casual listeners alike.

"Most collectors will want a set with Tebaldi & Bergonzi at the height of their powers." -- Penguin Guide

"The wonderful bustle of the Café Momus scene can never have been so vividly captured on disc…Tebaldi sings with great beauty of voice… Bergonzi sings with sincerity and style… [and] D’Angelo with taste and charm." -- Opera
