Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
Souzay comes [close] to modern notions of how to interpret Handel, Rameau, Lully, Gluck and Monteverdi, while retaining his unique individuality.

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.
