Notes & Reviews:

EMI and Walter Legge were the first to bring Nilsson into the recording studio. In those early sessions, during 1957 and 1958, Nilsson recorded the material on this CD. Nilsson's Mozart, Beethoven and Weber show conclusively that she combined all the strength, technical command and flexibility necessary to handle the lighter textures and fast-moving lines of these works.
