Leyla Gencer is absolutely amazing on this Trovtore! Ettore Bastianini is commanding, and in excellent voice as di Luna and a great foil to Del Monaco’s Manrico. From original tape RAI monotrack 15″ the source of original recording was on acetate-lack, for this you note some scratch and click.
Conte di Luna – Ettore Bastianini
Leonora – Leyla Gencer
Azucena – Fedora Barbieri
Manrico – Mario del Monaco
