Penguin Guide

2010 edition

****

“It remains one of the finest versions, with Leontyne Price at the peak of her form and Di Stefano singing most sensitively. But Karajan deserves equal credit with the principal singers, and the sound is first class”

Gramophone Magazine

“It is a joy to hear Puccini's orchestration ... brought out with such precision ... Karajan's impressiveness consists of more than drawing brilliant playing from the Vienna Philharmonic ... [his] control of tension shows itself at its most impressive ... Price pours forth a flood of rich, glorious tone and her attention to detail is exemplary.”
