There was no finer interpreter of Donizetti's, Verdi's and Puccini's tenor roles throughout his long career than Carlo Bergonzi . . . His singing of all three composers' music evinced an innate sense of how to mould an immaculate line projected on a long breath, an exemplary clarity of diction, and an authoritative use of the particular style called for in interpreting a role. Over and over again, you could hear, and can still hear on his many recordings, how to shape a phrase and to do so with a voice of intrinsic beauty, flawlessly produced, so no effort seemed involved. He eschewed vocal histrionics, and ensured that the expression was applied from within the aria or ensemble. Far from being a macho tenor, he was the aristocrat of the breed and as such universally admired . . .

. . . an impressive realisation, with refined playing from the Vienna Phil . . . Renata Tebaldi's Aida is a considerable interpretation: solid and secure yet also voiced with imagination. Giulietta Simionato's mezzo delivers an Amneris with a human face. Carlo Bergonzi's Radames combines vocal excellence with dramatic insight, while Cornell MacNeil presents an Amonasro of boldness and distinction. Producer John Culshaw uses aural perspectives to suggest the complex physical layout of Verdi's score, including its rich assembly of off-stage and under-stage effects.
