Notes & Reviews:

These first releases of Margaret Price with the Münchner Rundfunkorchester cover a time period from 1977 to 1991. Her work was largely concentrated on Mozart and Verdi, to which this CD pays ample credit, and also features arias by Bellini, Cilea, Rossini and Weber. Mozartian clarity, a consistently effortless vocal production, histrionic fire and a healthy grounding - these attributes made Margaret Price an internationally revered opera star.

Ritmo
An album of Margaret Price is very welcome, because the lyric voice broad, with facility for coloratura and a high tessitura extension (which allowed him to sing in his youth Constanze in The Abduction , and at maturity Amelia, Agathe or Marshal, including Isolde under study) did not record as much as deserved.

Opera News
this highly enjoyable collection certainly merits its inclusion in the "Great Singers Live" series.

MusicWeb International
The orchestra, under three different conductors, gives their distinguished guest good support. The sound is perfectly satisfactory. The booklet contains a warm appreciation of the singer but no texts or translations.

American Record Guide
Price's voice is so individual, so ravishingly beautiful, that I quickly get lost in it and forget to listen to the characters she's portraying... She's a singer I can never get enough of, and listening to her reduces me to wholehearted, uncritical rapture... her admirers should be particularly happy to have the few "new" items here. The sound is of good studio quality regardless of the year...

Miami Clasica
Live with this souvenir of his most celebrated roles, the Radio Orchestra in Munich presents his tribute to Dame Margaret Price (1941-2011) who spent the best years of his career in the Bavarian capital. When Carlos Kleiber, another famous Munich resident, asked to consider incorporating the Marschallin ( Der Rosenkavalier ) to his repertoire replied "What for? if allchattering " . Kleiber reluctantly accepted but, he continued to besiege and convinced her to star in his recording of Tristan und Isolde, Wagner wanted a liquidity sung with a voice of Mozart. He was right, his voice pure and flexible, ideally Mozart was his most prized possession.
