Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Leonora was one of Callas's finest stage roles and this recording is wonderfully intense, with a dark concentrated loveliness of sound in the principal arias. Karajan conducts with that almost insolent mastery of score and orchestra which made him such a phenomenon at this period of his career. Whatever you do, don't miss this set

International Record Review
Callas is on commanding form as Leonora, Di Stefano is at his best and the whole performance is knit together with superb dramatic flair by Karajan. This is one of the most memorable and enduring recordings ever made of Il Trovatore.
