Notes & Reviews:

Anna Leese and Stephen de Pledge perform Italian Love Songs by Bellini, Puccini, Donizetti and Tosti. These elegant pieces for solo voice, some well known, others less so, connect directly with a rich and substantial body of Italian art songs, romanze and liriche da camera, composed over the course of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
I have had an incredible string of luck with listening these days. It seems that I am on a roll of fabulous, expressive singing AND effective programming. This is no exception.
