Reviews

‘Much fine singing can be heard here … The ‘Gioconda’ duet is brilliant; and Simionato in her three arias is unfailingly dependable and stylistically authoritative.’ Gramophone, March 1958

‘Simionato is very impressive … Tebaldi makes a surprisingly good Tatiana […] and Bastianini’s ‘Chénier’ aria the best thing on the disc.’ Opera magazine, January 1958
