"This recording finds Caballe in the very best voice, and Christoff at the top of his game. The tenor, Bruno Prevdi, was one of those three or four year sensations, and, listening to this recording, I am not at all sure what all the fuss was about. He does very little with the music except sing it, and the tone isn't all that great either. Peter Glossop is the Don Carlo. While not in the league of the Italians who have recorded this role, he is more than adaquate in it. You will take this recording from your shelf many times because Caballe and Christoff are in it--they make this recording more than worth the little bit of money it costs."

"Verdi has given us a virtual songfest!!!This two disc CD has a wonderful ensemble. I really enjoyed hearing Monserat Caballe in this recording. Her lower register or "chest tones" make you really appreciate her great range. It is a good CD to have in your car when you take that long commute.......... it is a real bargain!!!!!"
