Gramophone Magazine Awards Issue 2013 “Pappano's players provide a firmness of tone in a perfectly balanced sound stage...At full pelt [the chorus] is equally matched to the tutti of the orchestra...Pappano is such a compelling advocate for Verdi's music that there could be no finer 200th-birthday salute than this stunning disc. Do try to find room for it on your shelves.” Daily Express 'Antonio Pappano... seems to have an almost mystical feel that always brings out the best in Verdi's music.'
