ArtistsVictoria de los Angeles
Giuseppe di Stefano
Anna Maria Canali
Rome Opera House Chorus and Orchestra
Victoria de los Angeles, never in finer or fuller voice, sings with radiant beauty, Giuseppe di Stefano is a thrilling yet moving Pinkerton while Tito Gobbi brings unexpected depth and feeling to the rôle of Sharpless.
The recording is further distinguished by idiomatic and characterful performances from the Rome Opera Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Gianandrea Gavazzeni, who was also a noted composer, author and musicologist.
“When Victoria de los Angeles appeared at the Edinburgh Festival [in the mid 1950s], she was in her prime, the voice as supple and sensitive as it was beautiful. Everything she tackled seemed to be touched by the magic of her attractive presence and glorious singing.” Gramophone
