This review is from: Puccini: La Bohème (Audio CD)
Tebaldi was the finest singer since the end of world war two. Forget about your Fremi's, Callas and the rest. The purity of her voice makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand out. I have listened to this opera many times and she still brings tears to my eyes when listen. Coupled with the conductor Tullio Serrafin and Bergonza it is a must have double CD which must be played again and again. It is like a fine wine it improves with age and needs to be savoured over and over again. Its times like this I wish I was published critic so that I could extoll the virtues of this brilliant recording.

It's hard to forget Callas - her recordings from the late 40s to the late 50s are beyond comparison. Tebaldi was a fine singer, but Callas was a goddess.
Gorgeous recording though - those Decca producers were wonderful.
