"This is a reasonably priced CD of a live recording of a 1959 performance (Italian version), in Vienna. I was expecting a decent re-mastering of the old recording, allowed by the current advanced technology. Unfortunately, this is not the case. From the very beginning, you notice the hollow empty sound quality. The music and the performance of the singers and the orchestra are distorted, to the point of taking out all the pleasure of listening to the this otherwise extremely beautiful opera."
