****

“[Callas's] command in her big aria, Caro nome, is complete, yet the set is even more remarkable for the magnificent assumption of the title-role by Tito Gobbi, dark, intense and deeply moving...[di Stefano is] also at his peak...there is full-bodied sound in Mark Obert-Thorn's Naxos transfer which is first-rate”
