Notes & Reviews:

The leading operatic 'tenore di grazia' of the 1950s and '60s, Cesare Valletti (1922-2000) was also an incomparable interpreter of songs. A few years after his 1953 Metropolitan Opera debut, Valletti crowned his successes on the operatic stage with a series of recitals at New York's Town Hall and the critics were astonished by his patrician musicianship, impeccable taste and fabulous diction. Recorded by RCA and issued on a pair of LPs, the Town Hall recitals of 1959 and 1960 were immediately seized upon as collectors' items. Now at last, every facet of Valletti's song repertoire is recaptured on these two CDs, which also include his 1958 studio album, 'The Art of Song'.
