Notes & Reviews:

Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballe was one of the world's leading operatic divas during the latter part of the 20th century. This 4-CD set brings together the best of Caballe's EMI recordings, including highlights from all her complete operas (with tenor partners that included fellow Spaniards Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, as well as her husband, Bernabe Marti ), as well as excerpts from recital discs and her lovely collections of Spanish songs.
