About this Recording

VERDI: Don Carlo (Christoff, Filippeschi, Gobbi) (1954)

This 1954 recording was the first studio realisation of the four-act 1884 version of Don Carlo and did much to introduce a wider public to the majesty of Verdi’s score. When the recording was reviewed in The Gramophone in November 1955 it commented:“Gobbi goes from strength to strength … Rodrigo’s noble death scene elicits from this artist some of the loveliest baritone singing I have ever heard on record.With the cardinal rôles of the King and Posa finely done, with beautifully moulded tone-colour and phrasing …, for the contributions of Gobbi and Christoff, the bloom of Stella’s voice and for the sublime ultra-Verdian splendours of this score, lovingly handled by Santini, the set will repay attention”.
