Notes & Reviews:

Ten classic recordings of recitals from legends of the golden era, featuring great performances from José Carreras, Janine Micheau, George London and more, re-released from Decca with a new low price.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
Carreras is certainly caught in his prime...in what is surely some of the most sheerly beautiful tenor singing from its period.
