Notes & Reviews:

"His voice is of faultless beauty and remarkable expressive power; it possesses the velvety richness which we have not experienced since the days of Gigli and Lauri Volpi" wrote an eminent American critic in 1948 following Giuseppi di Stefano's Metropolitan Opera debut. During the ensuing decades, this great singer ranked among the finest and most lionized tenors in the world. Giuseppe di Stefano became world famous for his beautiful tone and exceptional use of pianissimo and natural elegance of delivery. He sang with impeccable style, pureness and beauty - some say he had the most beautiful voice of any tenor whoever lived. Here, released for the first time internationally on CD, in his only opera recital recorded for Deutsche Grammophon.
