"By and large this set of Rigoletto must now become the recommended version. [This recording was met with] excited anticipation at finding Giulini once again in the studio recording his beloved Verdi... Giulini, like the composer, was himself out to "make something of a great subject", and he – with the dedication of about as strong a cast as it would be possible to assemble today, the Vienna Philharmonic and the DG engineers – has achieved not just another performance of an oft-recorded work but something with that kind of individual distinction so rarely encountered" - Gramophone Magazine, 1980
 
"The Giulini set on DG, with Cappuccilli, Cotrubas and Domingo, is exceptional: searching, humane, powerfully registered... Domingo's is one of the greatest accounts of the role ever recorded, from "Questa o quella" through to a classic account of the famous Quartet... The Giulini set is necessary listening for anyone interested in Verdi, Rigoletto, or the tenor's art" - Gramophone Magazine, 1985
