Notes & Reviews:

"...The recital is intelligently chosen, with beautiful performances of Prokofiev's own battlefield survey of the girl moving among the fallen, and Tchaikovsky's Joan bidding farewell to her homeland. The excerpt from the little-known 'Moscow' is really no more than a curiosity. In all, an interesting recital by an interesting singer with a powerful personality who understands the music well and performs it with never anything less than full intensity." -Gramophone
