Notes & Reviews:

"Fleming's voice is sumptuous, her lower register especially sounds so warmly resonant that I found myself thinking of Leontyne Price in her glory days...[and she] shows herself equal to every mood...What beautiful tunes there are here, including the waltz song from 'The Medium' and 'Ain't it a pretty night' from Susannah...If she can stay the course, she's surely destined to be one of the greats." -PO'C, Gramophone
