Pittsburgh Magazine, December 2002

"The first complete commercial recording of The Force of Destiny, made in 1941, remains my favorite. Superb singers-under the direction of Marinuzzi-give a performance that vividly conveys the life and death struggle at the heart of this drama."

Robert levine, June 2002

After 61 years, this performance still rings true. It's filled with the stuff that makes great Verdi sound great: big, exciting voices, a genuine feeling for where a vocal line is going from the moment it starts, a type of buzzing vitality for which there is no substitute, and the knowledge, on the part of singers and conductor alike, that despite the fact that this is all far-flung melodrama, the emotions run deep and true...This is a gem - real Italian opera the way it was meant to sound.
