Compilation: Giuseppe Di Stefano in Memoriam: Arias from Elisir, La traviata, Ballo, Tosca, Turandot, Rienzi. With Moffo & Tebaldi
Listen to a Sample:
We were all sad to hear of the death of Giuseppe Di Stefano. I never heard Di Stefano live but the recordings he left behind have been indispensable to me. Even towards the end of his career when the voice was not working as he may have liked it to, he never let that distract him from the connection to the drama and the music. Besides the beauty of his voice, all of his performances seemed to be delivered with so much love for opera. This compilation includes excerpts from Elisir, Traviata, Ballo, Rienzi, Turandot, Manon Lescaut and Tosca. He is joined by Anna Moffo and Renata Tebaldi. His voice will live on.
