Notes & Reviews:

Fans of Roberto Alagna will warmly welcome a bel canto album from a tenor primarily known for his romantic lyric roles in Verdi and Puccini, along with their nearest counterparts in the French repertoire. However, Alagna is no stranger to bel canto, having appeared in his first Donizetti opera 'L'elisir d'amore' the same year he made his debut (1988) in La traviata.

Notes & Reviews:

Selections recorded September and October 1999 at EMI Abbey Road Studio no. 1, London and May 2001 at Lyndhurst Hall, Air Studios, London, England.
