Notes & Reviews:
Warner Classics is proud to present the first of 18 Verdi opera recordings from the legendary Cetra (Fonit-Cetra) archive of historic mono recordings made in the 50s and 60s that will be re-issued over the course of 2012.
These monumental recordings, known to collectors world-wide, feature such stars as Maria Callas and Franco Corelli along with the most talented respected Italian Verdi specialists of the time.
Cetra Records triumphed in the early 50s when they undertook to produce these sometimes rare or underrated Verdi operas in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the composer's death.
Now, Warner Classics sets out to re-issue these recordings in celebration of the upcoming 200th anniversary of Verdi's birth - October 18, 2013.
Recording information: Roma (03/01/1951).
