Reviews

‘the Monterone, Maddalena and the Sparafucile are first rate. In the name part Protti puts up a very good show indeed: he is much in form; true in scale, generous… [Gueden] has many sweet moments. … Del Monaco sings very loud indeed: his is a splendid organ – and we think, if not instantly of the Duke of Mantua, at least of a lusty lover’ Gramophone
