DVN-17

DESCRIPTION
• Remastered from a first generation copy of the original master. Best sound available.
• Unfortunately, the first 15 minutes of this 1955 La Scala performance were not recorded. All previous LP and CD editions filled in the missing portions of music using diverse uncredited sources. In order to preserve a sense of completeness for those who wish to listen to Bellini’s opera in its entirety, Divina Records has chosen the same option, but not without providing appropriate credits.
• This CD edition contains all known surviving material from December 7, 1955; unlike other labels, Divina Records has not replaced any portion of this material by parts from other, inauthentic sources.
