La Fanciulla has long been my favorite Puccini opera for it's beauty and color of orchestral and vocal writing. The glory of this recording is the joy of hearing a young Nilsson at "full sail" as Minnie, the Italian Valkyrie! And the glory of the 1958 La Scala Orchestra under the estimable Von Matacic and EMI's famous producer Walter Legge. Nice to have this recording available on CD.

In terms of recording and vocal quality, this 1959 Fanciulla is exemplary.The role of Minnie suited Nilsson. This role is very difficult and loaded with high notes. These high notes are child play for Nilsson.For power and vocal gleam Nilsson has no peers. Joao Gibin as Dick Johnson sings with accuracy,style and passion. Sparks between Nilsson and Gibin are great. Andrea Mongelli in the role of Jack Rance is strong. Mongelli has a beautifull voice and is an exellent singing actor. Lovro von Matacic account of the orchestral score is excellent and "Bravo " to the Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scalla. I will be clinging and playing this recording often. EMI is to be congratulated and commended for finally reisuing this superb recording.

By Frank( Miami,Florida)- Yes, finally after all these years this recording is available for us to enjoy. The role of Minnie suited Nilsson almost as well as Turandot. Yet I always hear her in the shadow of Tebaldi in this role hoewver Nilsson displays real heart in true italian style. Comparing the present EMI issue with the DECCA studio recording with Tebaldi, del Monaco and McNeil I find Nilsson , Gibin and Mongelli more exinting to my ears and in excellent vocal form. It is my advice to grab it before it becomes unavailable again.

This recording of FANCIULLA has the distinction of being the only LP opera set I ever threw in the trash, many years ago when it was first released. Can you picture Brunhilde running a tavern; well no, neither can I. As ill-suited as Nilsson is for the role of Minnie, the other two principals are equally bad. This has been unavailable for so long, probably because it was savaged by the critics when released and sat on shelves unsold. Now, it's just a curiosity. For those reviewers here who think so highly of it, they might also want to try Mara Zampieri and, of course, Tebaldi to hear the Minnie Puccini most likely had in mind.
