This collection began life as RCA LSC-2795 back in 1964. It has been available in various guises over the ensuing years. It's good to have it back in this first rate remastering, courtesy of Newton Classics. Moffo's vocalizing is extraordinary. Stokowski's accompaniment is everything one could hope for.

Don't fall for this ridiculously expensive reissue (which has NOT been remastered here by Newton Classics, incidentally). It is available for about $20 in the Leopold Stokowski 'The Stereo Collection' box set, which has indeed been newly remastered (in 24-bit) and sounds absolutely fantastic. Do not patronize these Amazon marketplace sellers which are asking these exorbitant prices for this single disc. Get the big box set and enjoy not only this disc, but hours and hours of additional music conducted by the master himself.
