This trovatore gets four stars primarily thanks to the wonderful Leontyne Price, Milnes (one of the great Di Lunas on record) and the great Cossotto (her second recording).

Domingo was a fantastic Verdi tenor and a fine Manrico, but in "Di Quella Pira" you have a wonderful moment of theatre and Domingo struggles. His top C, by his own admission, is strained; tenors like Corelli, Bonisolli, Bjorling (and latterly Alagna) leave you thrilled and satisfied. (If you want Domingo then note that his Trovatore under Giulini on DG is far, far better).

It's worth including in your collection, but if you want one (studio recording)then the Karajan/Bonisolli or the Schippers/Corelli (or the subtle version Alagna/Pappano).

PS: In reference to the sound - I heard a couple of peak distortions which mars this recording.

Subtle it ain't but for all its faults this recording I find thrilling!Tucci would not be my choice of Leonora but she does it all creditably-Corelli is a his best,which means thrilling in many places and lacrymose in others,but never dull-Simionato dramatic,tho' the voice is separating noticeably and Merrill as ever the baritone with the voice to die for.It may not be the best Trovatore but it is never dull or merely correct.

I still own a number of prime arias in 78 form from this set. I believe that this was a good recording for its time and was not difficult to play on the equipment then available. The sound quality achieved in the recording offered here is quite pleasing and seamless in the linking of the discs, and the subdued muffled sound often produced in dubbings of 78's is thankfully not evident. I think that Pertile was close to his best in this recording, and he is well supported by Granforte, Carena and Minghini-Cattaneo. This is an old recording (1930) and should not be compared with the sounds and performances enjoyed today but well worth hearing if only to have an insight into the styles and quality of pre-war opera performances. A bit of surface sound here and there, but play Pertile singing "Di quella pira!"and perhaps you will find that you hardly notice it after all! I have been familiar with this for 60 years but wonder whether a little more information concerning the performers might be a selling point whatever the price, and encourage current opera lovers to explore the past.
