Notes & Reviews:

"Joan Sutherland makes Adina a more substantial figure than usual, full-throatedly serious at times, at others jolly like the rumbustious Marie; and in the key role of Nemorino, Luciano Pavarotti proves ideal, vividly portraying the wounded innocent." -Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

Gramophone Magazine
Bonynge leads a team ... which not only conveys jollity but which sings and plays as though full opera house applause is to be expected a the end of each number ... The ECO playing ... has a refinement and stylishness which makes all the difference ... Pavarotti has a Gigli -like quality in characterisation and this suits him ideally for the role of the simple, devoted Nemorino ... you should readily be won over by the sheer exuberance, vocal as well as dramatic, that Sutherland brings to the role. It is a joy to the ear to have well- loved music treated to extra vocal splendours at both ends of the soprano register.
