Notes and Editorial Reviews

"These reissues dating from the Fifties...represent something which I suspect is lost forever in the modern world: almost exclusively Italian artists singing their native repertoire in their own language and under a conductor who knows the idioms of Verdi and Puccini inside out. Erede is a singer-friendly maestro, but one who knows exactly when to relax the tension and whip up the drama. Younger conductors of Italian opera – you know the guilty men – could learn a lot from these discs. Tebaldi is the constant and she is in fresher, fuller voice than in all of her stereo remakes of these roles...Make no mistake, this is Italian lirico spinto singing of a type not heard since her retirement in the mid-Seventies."
