Notes & Reviews:

The purpose of this CD, with its wonderful historic recordings, is to keep alive the memory of the golden voice of Belgian contralto Ria Bollen (b. 1942). The CD gathers a large selection of live recordings, made both at home and abroad, that takes into account both the quality and diversity of her recorded performances.
