"Callas and Rossi-Lemeni occupy a special plane. When they appear you are not just interested, you are involved. Tucker does some superb singing, and Tagliabue rescues himself from a stodgy start to make steely sparks fly from more than swords in their last encounter. Add Nicolai’s volatile glint as the camp follower, Capecchi’s sulky drollery as the buffo monk, and the peddler’s slyness, and it adds up to a performance rich in characterization and in that reinforced, revitalized line that is the very pulse beat of Verdi." - Chicago Tribune, 1955
XR remastered for this new Pristine release, Maria Callas's classic 1954 recording of Verdi's La Forza del Destino has never sounded better! Not to be missed.
