V2565. BERNARDO de MURO: Arias & Scenes (w.Oltrabella, Badini, Janni, Casazza & Bettoni) from Isabeau, L'Africana, Carmen, Andrea ChÃ©nier, La Fanciulla del West, Il Trovatore, Don Carlos & Otello. (France) Malibran 163, recorded 1912-28.
"Despite the power and penetration of the voice, de Muro could also sing with much subtlety and commanded a wide dynamic range....this diminutive tenor amazed all who heard him by the sheer size and power of his Tamagno-like voice."
- Vivian A. Liff, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Jan./Feb., 2004
"De Muro was praised as a tenore di forza by no less than Giacomo Lauri-Volpi. De Muro's is a stupendous sound with enormous thrust, natural color and, in the earlier recordings, great beauty."
- Albert Innaurato, OPERA NEWS, Oct., 1996
