Comments:- Recording of a performance at Teatro di San Carlo, Naples (17 January 1953). According to the review in ORPHEUS «Kaum seinen Ohren glaubt, wenn man voller Grausen hört, wie es auf den beiden CDs auf den Neapel von 1953 eiert und scheppert, wenn BENIAMINO GIGLI einen seiner letzten Nemorinos in Donizetti's ELISIR D'AMORE singt. Gerade Bongiovanni hätte man es nicht zugetraut, eine mit solch gravierenden technischen Mängeln behaftete CD auf den Markt zu werfen.» The recording issued by the Omega Opera Archive is attributed by the to RAI and the the quality is not indicated in their online catalogue.

Comments:- The «foyer» CDs are a recording of a performance at La Scala (16 March 1972; see OPERA, June 1972 p.549 ), but according to Sergio Segalini (OPÉRA INTERNATONAL novembre 1997 No.218 p.24) the Legato CDs (labeled as being conducted by Gavazzeni, although the year is given as 1973) are in fact a recording of a performance in Genoa (1975). Details of this are listed separately. It is possible (probable?) that the recording on the LPs from HRE is also of the performance in Genoa in view of the fact that Legato Classics were the successor to HRE
