Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Sound quality here reaches a respectable standard, and all the voices have been captured in a truthful acoustic with mostly excellent balance between them and the orchestra. Votto knows his Verdi and manages to keep the pulse of this magnificent. The experienced Capecchi is an excellent Melitone, fully deserving the enthusiastic audience acclaim at the conclusion of the 'Minestra' scene. The filler, taken from a 1951 Rio de Janeiro, Votto-conducted Aida, includes 'Ritorna vincitor' and an almost complete Act 3. Paolo Silveri is a barely satisfactory Amonasro. Fortunately many better examples of the soprano in this role are available. Given the truly execrable sound and her bawling colleagues, only Tebaldi's most fervent admirers are likely to be pleased to have these further examples of their diva; but the Forza itself is well worth the price.
