Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 20th June 2013
In this collection CaballT exhibits her security of bel canto coloratura, with rapid decorations and limpid tone interspersed with well-enunciated words... [the final four arias] represent Montserrat CaballT at her very best and make a fitting end to this selection that celebrates her eightieth anniversary.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
Recorded at her peak in the 1970s,this collection shows Caballe to be the master of both Bellini and Verdi, her incredible technique focused on expressive aims.
