“[The glorious La Scala baritone] Umberto Urbano made a series of records remarkable for their pure lyricism and the beauty of tone….He could command the style and technique to sing the baritone arias from LA FAVORITA in the tradition of Battistini: the fioriture are fluent and even, and there is a certain appropriate regality of manner.”

- J.B. Steane, THE GRAND TRADITION, p.184
