Notes & Reviews:

A few years ago, a singer at a top German opera house was begged by a conductor devoted to belcanto with the words: 'Don't just give me single pearls, give me a whole necklace!' The pearl necklace puts us on the track of what belcanto is: It is not beautiful individual sounds in succession without any link, but rather the art of forming fluid lines, of legato, of phrases in which the sounds merge to a constant intensity which makes this art hat it is. - Excerpt from the liner notes
