Notes & Reviews:

"Karajan...presented a suprememly beautiful and challenging interpretaion [in this 1965 recording]. From the very first shimmer of strings in the prelude, listeners will realize that this is no mere run-through or compilation of splices. Karajan...gives dignity and stature to the characters with tempos that are somewhat slower than usual but never dull or plodding...La Scala orchestra and chorus deserve special praise for their magnificent playing and singing..." -Milazzo, ARG

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Karajan and his La Scala forces bring a real feel of the theatre to these two much-loved works. Bergonzi, Panerai, Carlyle and Cossotto are on top form. And the Scala chorus are thrilling in the great choral numbers.
