Notes & Reviews:

Features rare recordings that are very difficult to find in their original 78 rpm format! This compilation includes Cesare Siepi’s first recordings, made for the Cetra Company when he was only twenty-four years old. They underline the amazing weight, color, and sonority of his voice, coupled with interpretations of great maturity not to be expected from a young man at the outset of his career.

BBC Music Magazine
Arguably the finest Italian bass of his time and acclaimed as the leading exponent of Don Giovanni, Cesare Siepi is heard here in roles central to his repertoire and lighter songs in which his sensitivity is to the fore.
