Notes & Reviews:

Born in 1910, Giulietta Simionato had a slow start with her career, but had her big breakthrough at La Scala in 1955. Her workload was enormous: up to 100 performances annually all over the world. This CD provides a survey of her musical development and her most celebrated roles. It pays homage to one of the most important mezzo-sopranos of the 20th century.
