"Malipiero’s career was to some extent blighted by the war. He rarely sang outside his native Italy, and will be remembered mainly for his participation in the concert for the reopening for La Scala under Toscanini, plus his fine singing in the first complete recording of LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR with Lina Pagliughi. The voice, with its attractive fast vibrato, has a truly distinctive quality, and he is invariably an interesting artist….Tenor addicts are unlikely to be disappointed with this generously filled disc.”
