Notes & Reviews:

Tenor Flaviano Labo` had a prestigious, if overshadowed, career that, after his 1954 debut, maintained a high quality and a remarkable professional honesty. His wide vibrato, homogeneous color and perfect timbre - shaded dark as bronze - in general opinion made him the perfect Verdi tenor. Aside Labo` for this 1964 'Il Trovatore' is a singer whose voice and career was in some ways similar to his: the American soprano Anna de' Cavalieri (Anne McKnight), another authentic Verdi voice who debuted under Toscanini as Musetta in La Bohe`me in 1946 but sadly left behind a fairly scant discography.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Anna de'Cavalieri (the American Ann McKnight) is almost her equal. The soprano has a brighter sound than Callas, but their use of portamento, dynamics, and ornamentation is quite similar. This recording makes me wish De'- Cavalieri (or McKnight) had based her career in her home country. Then there are the tenors. Here the South American production wins. Flaviano Labo sang for a short time at the Met and apparently was a reliable tenor in many corners of the world. His Manrico is beautifully phrased; he never seems to strain, and he can switch from the lyricism of 'Ah si, ben mio' to the dramatic force of 'Di quella pira' with no problem. His career occurred mostly in the decade of the 50s.
