1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Ralph Moore TOP 50 REVIEWER on 22 Sept. 2013
Mr Cantrell has already provided us with his usual, first class and perceptive review on Amazon.com, so I shall just add a few words to endorse his recommendation.

The 1950's was an extraordinarily active period of radio broadcasts of live Verdi opera by RAI, first from Rome then latterly from Turin. Virtually all of these performances are of a high standard, utilising the best Italian singers of the day such as Carlo Bergonzi (who had just switched from baritone to tenor), Taddei, Pagliughi, Tagliavini, Stella, Neri, Paolo Silveri, and Caterina Mancini. The latter two are the lead singers in this "Nabucco", and are all but forgotten today. The tenor here, Mario Binci, has joined the likes of Amedeo Berdini and Gini Penno, who are virtually unknown except to cognoscenti but are revealed on these Cetra recordings to be major artists. The boxy mono sound has not helped to ensure their survival; the Warner-Fonit remasterings improved matters and are superior to the many other issues on various labels, but these sets are now discontinued and unlikely to reappear, so you'll need to keep looking on Amazon Marketplace and websites elsewhere; there are still, at the time of writing, plenty available at a reasonable price.

1951 was particularly busy at RAI, beginning in January with this broadcast; there followed "La Battaglia di Legnano" in March, "Simon Bocccanegra" in November, and "I Due Foscari" in December - and also an undistinguished "Don Carlo", so not everything was desirable. Some recordings, such as the 1954 "Rigoletto" with Taddei have become classics, but all have much to offer if you can tolerate that constricted sound.
