When the recording was reviewed in The Gramophone in November 1955 it was commented: “Gobbi goes from strength to strength … Rodrigo’s noble death scene elicits from this artist some of the loveliest baritone singing I have ever heard on record. With the cardinal rôles of the King and Posa finely done, with beautifully moulded tone-colour and phrasing …, for the contributions of Gobbi and Christoff, the bloom of Stella’s voice and for the sublime ultra-Verdian splendours of this score, lovingly handled by Santini, the set will repay attention”.

**/***

“chiefly memorable for the incomparable contributions of Tito Gobbi and Boris Christoff...which have never been matched since...Gobbi's singing in the Death Scene is arguably the finest recorded performance that even this glorious artist ever made...The bitingly dark tone of Christoff as the King also goes with intense feeling for the dramatic situation.”
