Certainly, there are other more popular recordings of Verdi's melancholic masterpiece (Price/Tucker, Callas/Di Stefano for example) but one should not neglect this one. It's truly wonderful. On this set we have Tebaldi's angelic voice at its finest! The "Pace, pace" alone will convince you (this is, no doubt, the best recording of this aria). Her voice often overshadows her acting abilities which are remarkably balanced and affective. She never overacts, nor does she become boring. The stentorian, dramatic instrument of Mario del Monaco gives us a heroic portrait of Don Alvaro. For sheer power, he has no rivals. Maestro Molinari-Pradelli has chosen a well tried formula so the cast is completed with Verdi experts like Bastianini, Simionato and Siepi (many Decca recordings have these supreme artists together). I especially love the Tebaldi/Siepi duet and the chorus together with Tebaldi in act II as well as the final scene of the opera. Concluding, do not hesitate to buy this set even if you already have another. Its unforgettable and of exceptional value!

...although the earlier of Leontyne Price's two recordings runs it close.This is one of the three or four most satisfying recordings of this great, sprawling opera - and two of the others also feature Tebaldi. To hear her at her very best, you need to go to the legendary 1953 live set, thrillingly conducted by Mitropoulos - Del Monaco also is stunning here - but the sound is pretty rough and Aldo Protti merely adequate compared with the burnished, nut-brown tones of Bastianini. This 1955 Decca studio recording, in excellent stereo sound, is very good - I cannot believe how snooty some critics (especially my compatriot British ones who rave about weedy, effete voices like those of Pears, Bostridge and their like) are about Del Monaco in this, probably his best role after Otello; to me he is tremendous, but it has to be said that for sheer glamour, Corelli tops him in the 1958 Hardy recording with the same conductor (also available on black & white DVD) which is in good, live sound but obviously not as pleasant a listening experience as this. The cast assembled is without peer even if Molinari-Pradelli's conducting is nothing special and Tebaldi is certainly in fresher voice than in 1958. We are spoilt for choice with recordings of this opera, as, in addition to the earlier Price set, there is also the Callas version with a good, if not quite so spectacular, cast let down by Rossi-Lemeni's woolly Padre Guardiano and a baritone past his best. After over 50 years, this remains the best bet, in many ways, and it is now available on DG Originals.

This recording of "La Forza del Destino" still stands up pretty well. The cast is outstanding, the sound perfectly acceptable in early stereo, and it has the advantage of being reasonably priced. It is highly unlikely that this opera could have been better cast in Europe at this time (the Metropolitan Opera would have given us Milanov, Tucker, Warren, etc, nothing to sneer at either!), and this London recording represents a typical evening at La Scala on an evening when Tebaldi would have been singing. Tebaldi is very good here, but she's still not as good as she was a little earlier on that legendary pirate recording conducted by Dimitri Mitropoulos. Nor is Mario del Monaco as good here as he was on that legendary Mitropolous performance either. Still, with the support of Simionato, a really fluent mezzo, and Bastianini, one of the great baritones of his time, one can hardly go wrong with this recording.
