Notes & Reviews:
"The husband-and-wife partnership of Gheorghiu and Alagna is formidably demonstrated in Decca's more recent recording...Gheorghiu's glorious singing is powerfully matched by the heroic tones of Alagna, culminating in a deeply moving death-scene." -Penguin Guide
BBC Music Magazine
Puccini's romance shines brightly, with plenty of detail and lively conducting from Riccardo Chailly, Gheorghiu, Alagna, Keenlyside and D'Arcangelo provide highlights.
