Saint-Saëns: Samson et Dalila - Stignani, Vinay, Manca Serra, Amodeo. De Palma; Reiger. Napoli, 1955


Listen to a Sample:


It is hard, at times, to think of Ramon Vinay as a tenor.  His voice had the richness of a baritone and later in his career he would drop down and sing those roles.   Here he proves his credential sufficiently as a great tenor with ringing high notes.   Ebe Stignani is alluring as Dalila, her voice transitioning easily from rich chest tones to gleaming high notes.  The sound is fair.
