Notes & Reviews:

Penguin Guide
Cotrubas makes an ideal heroine in this opera, for her characterization combines strength with vulnerability...Kleiber's direction is controversial, with more than a hint of Toscanini-like rigidity in the party music...[but] the overall effect is highly involving, indeed thrilling, and this reissue must be counted an outstanding success.

Records and Recording
I am bound to say that, in terms of singing, playing, conducting and sound quality, this set comes closer to my notions of an ideal experience than any Verdi I have ever heard on disc.
