Notes & Reviews:
Intensity is the keynote of these performances. Mme. Vishnevskaya has a rich dramatic voice of characteristically Slavonic timbre, highly charged emotionally ... she is invaluably aided by accompaniments of infinite sensibility by her husband.
The engineers deserve special praise for the spacious recording they have given to the singer's large voice in this first-rate recording. ... I have only room to praise with equal warmth the beautifully sung and played group of Tchaikovsky's lovely songs - still so neglected. Here Vishnevskaya has most grateful vocal lines and pours forth her voice gloriously
