Notes & Reviews:
This historic recording is presently one of the very few CDs available on the market of Verdi's forgotten work. "Un Giorno di Regno" is a comic opera represents Verdi's first challenge in this genre before Falstaff's composition. The cast is made up of Italian artists and the performance has been recorded in 1951 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of composer's death.

This sort of idiomatic performance helps prevent the opera seeming merely coarse or routine as it can in unsympathetic hands or throats...If this recording helps to convince more people of its merits it can be welcomed albeit without enormous enthusiasm.
