Aida (Di Stefano, Stella)
Idis 6565 (2cd)
Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901)
Orchestra e Coro del Teatro alla Scala di Milano
Recorded live, Milano 1956
This version of Aida was recorded on the season opening day of the Teatro La Scala in 1956/57, but for unknown reasons it was neglected by the record industry.
The cast is all-Italian and full of stars: Giuseppe Di Stefano in the role of Radamès is most generous and sings at the top of his ability; Antonietta Stella and Giulietta Simionato are both marvellous and conductor Antonino Votto is highly inspired, the perfect heir of the great Toscaninian tradition.
