24 July 2011 marks what would have been the 90th birthday of Giuseppe di Stefano (died 3 March 2008).
Di Stefano’s long career began with his operatic debut in 1946 at Reggio Emilia when he sang Des Grieux in Massenet’s Manon; his last operatic role was as the Emperor in Turandot in July 1992.
Di Stefano is best remembered for his musical partnership with Maria Callas and many recordings; it was Di Stefano who partnered Callas on her last concert tour in 1973/74.
This set brings together Di Stefano’s three recital records and L’elisir d’amore recorded for Decca between 1955-64.
