Notes & Reviews:

Carlo Maria Giulini was one of the 20th century's greatest conductors. His live performances of operas by Verdi, Rossini and Mozart have acquired legendary status. The recording featuring a Glyndebourne production of Verdi's Falstaff given in 1955 at the Edinburgh Festival is unique since it has never been published before in any form. This 1955 performance marked Giulini's UK debut. The Times said, 'in the final analysis, it was Mr Giulini's direction which ensured the opera's success', and headlined the review by emphatically stating, 'A wonderful production'.

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
This is a very good Falstaff. Then again, this opera has been very lucky in the studio, as well as on stage, and I could not recommend this as a first recording. And, if it's Giulini you want, he made a studio recording of this opera, although by 1982 he had less energy than he displays here. Still, if you're curious about Corena, I don't think you will be disappointed by him, although I don't think that you will be blown away, either.

Classical Music, 21st April 2012
Giulini's Falstaff has a sage-like wit that makes a refreshing alternative to the noisier, bouncier comedy of many recent productions. His cast is superb, with Corena, born to sing the title-role, in great voice.

Sunday Times, 25th March 2012
It is more disciplined, musically, than Gui's recently released 1960 Glyndebourne live version...the young Giulini is always worth hearing in Verdi.

MusicWeb International, June 2012
The individual casting is admirable....A wonderfully relaxed and good humoured performance in which nearly everything seemed to have gone right.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2012
An ideal ensemble is headed by Corena's robustly restrained Falstaff and Giulini, livelier than in later years.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
The Falstaff (Corena, a first 'official' complete performance from him in the role on disc) and Quickly (the ubiquitous Dominguez) are superb, the Nannetta good, the Fords less so.
