"... the Nimbus method gives a needed sense of space ... transfers are good. This disc does a valuable service, collecting Lauri-Volpi's Otello records, adding for good measure several of his other wartime recordings (all rare outside Italy), and presenting a full version of Act 3 of Aida." John B. Steane, Gramophone
