. . . an attractive, even thrilling example of the Italian verismo school . . . The quality of these reissues is extraordinary in every way . . . The success of this recording revolves around the great, and under-recorded, Magda Olivero in one of her signature roles . . . she is a complete triumph . . . singing beautifully . . . There is a grandeur to her performance that defies description, but when you hear it you know it is there. Everything in her art is on display here, and she alone would recommend this recording to lovers of operatic singing . . . [Tito Gobbi] turns in one of his finest recorded portrayals . . . Both he and Olivero make us suspend disbelief and carry us along with their innate feel for the music and the drama . . . del Monaco provides visceral thrills . . . it will send shivers up and down your spine. Lamberto Gardelli conducts with urgency and with beauty at the same time, and gets fine playing from the orchestra . . . This is, for me at any rate, "the" recording of "Fedora" . . . Overall, this is an enthusiastic recommendation to any opera lover.

. . . [Magda Olivero] la diva met son art au service du mélodrame le plus sentimental avec une dignité extrême. A la tête des forces monégasque, Lamberto Gardelli s'y entend pour exalter les sortilèges d'une orchestration qui ne recule devant aucun effet. En complément, quelques extraits de "Francesca da Rimini" de Zandonai, défendue avec d'égales grâces par Olivero.
