Notes & Reviews:

"She's at her best here, singing with the fire that sometimes seemed to elude her, flaunting her ravishing pianissimos, and never breaking a sweat or taking an untoward breath as she tosses off difficult coloratura passages with ease... Singling out highlights would be folly in a tightly filled double-disc set, but you know from the very first notes of "Tanti affetti" from Rossini's La donna del lago, which begins Disc 1, that you're in for a feast of great singing. Orchestras and conductors are idiomatic... This is a must for any lover of great singing." -Classics Today

Penguin Guide
Re-listening to these performances, one can understand why Caballe's career really took off...Her bel canto has a fine-spun purity, and in these excerpts of Verdi's early genius she conveys melodic freshness...there is both brilliance and beauty in plenty here.
