Opera

““How beautifully she caressed the phrases [in the final duet] starting “Vedi? di morte l’angelo”, touching gently the notes marked staccato, ravishing the ear with the downward portamento from the high B-flat”

Penguin Guide

2010 edition

***

“This is arguably the finest commercial recording of an opera that Maria Callas ever made...[Gobbi and Callas's duet] has never been matched...Barbieri is an impressive Amneris. The mono sound is clean and generally well balanced in Mark Obert-Thorn's excellent transfer”
