This recording may not be the first recomedation for Otello, but Del Monaco in his prime is a true dramatic tenor, something in short supply today. Tebaldi also in her freshest most lovely voice. The later Karajan recording also on Decca and in stereo is better conducted and better sound, but the principals on this recording, earlier in their careers are worth hearing especially at budget price.
