Notes and Editorial Reviews

"To hear Tebaldi in Butterfly's Un bel di...is to be reminded that hers are the classic virtues: those of beautiful tone, musical feeling, sincere utterance. And if for these qualities she was supreme among her contemporary Italian sopranos, she surely stands head and shoulders above any of the present generation." - Gramophone

"The recital rightly concentrates on her stereo remakes of the key Puccini operas...voice still creamily fresh. Vissi d'arte (1959) is particularly beautiful...thrilling in Verdi, too, as the splendid Ritorna vincitor! Vibrantly demonstrates...this recital should disappoint no-one." - The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music
