Notes & Reviews:

The original Decca recordings on this CD document Bergonzi's first operatic recital of 1957 in its entirety. We hear the tenor after his first season at the Metropolitan Opera and on the threshold to a great international career. The excerpts that follow are taken from complete recordings of the operas Pagliacci and Simon Boccanegra and were recorded in 1951 for RAI.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Torino (01/30/1960).
