Giuseppe Di Stefano
Chorus and Orchestra of La Scala, Milan
Although the strain of her recent recording of Turandot (Naxos 811133435) sometimes takes its toll, her command of Manon is complete.
Those pages that are rarely sung accurately by other lyric sopranos, for example ‘L’ora, o Tirsi’ from Act II, Callas sings with polish and precision, executing the triplets with perfect rhythmic command.
