Details

"Mr Siepi radiates an ease and dignity astounding in one so young ... That he sings his Verdi with instinctive style was evident with his voicing of the great monologue Ella giammai m’amo which drew rounds of applause" Max de Shauensee, Philadelphia Post on Siepi’s Debut at the Metropolitan Opera, New York

Reviews

"Cesare Siepi was generally considered to be the great bass of his generation. These performances were recorded a couple of years before his American debut in 1950, and they display an already 'complete' voice; technically secure and even vocalizing. The recordings (air checks from the late '40s) certainly don't sound hi-fi, but this is a small price to pay for such great singing." - David A. Newton
