Notes and Editorial Reviews
"The four-act version (with additional cuts) has remained popular since it was issued in 1955, and is still worth having for the superb characterisations of Boris Christoff as Philip and Tito Gobbi as Rodrigo. Antonietta Stella makes a sympathetic Elizabetta and Elena Nicolai a splendid Eboli. Carlo is sung by Mario Filippeschi, who was capable of some crude performances in the opera house, but who is on his best behaviour here."
-- Charles Osborne, BBC Music Magazine
