About

This 1954 recording was the first studio realisation of the four-act 1884 version of Don Carlo and did much to introduce a wider public to the majesty of Verdi’s score.
 
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”.
 
Don Carlo is perhaps the most passionate of all Verdi’s operas, telling as it does the fateful story of Don Carlo, his love for his father King Philip’s bride and the bitter feuds that ensued.
