"The Busch set has to rank among the most satisfying performances of this work ever available on disc, up there with the almost contemporaneous (1947) Toscanini and the Serafin of some ten years later (just reissued), not entirely to forget the pre-war Met rendering under Panizza with Martinelli as the Moor, in inferior sound...the mono sound is true, in good balance with no distortions of the voices, on a par in fact with the Toscanini, and it is with the older conductor's fiery, elemental, definitive reading that Busch's deserves to be compared." - Gramophone
