This performance of Oct 28, 1957 is not 100% complete and is not top level sounding.
Anita's singing is absolutely THRILLING...
This Trovatore is one of the very best of all Cerquetti's recordings and no
one who hears her " tacea la notte " will ever encounter that quality
and homogeneity of velvet timbre with that fascinating contrast control.
