Those are some of the loveliest sounds ever to issue from a soprano's throat.  

But if you want to hear a rendition of that aria that lays bare Leonora's emotional anguish and 
tears your heart out, listen to Callas on her complete "Forza" recording.  She doesn't have 
Milanov's vocal lushness.  But the dramatic truth is profound.  (Just listen to "In mezzo a 
tanto, a tanto duol!")  

Two kinds of beauty.  I would not want to be without either.  But if I want the drama, I will go 
with Callas, vocal warts and all.
