Notes & Reviews:
"To give Mr. Bonynge his due, he inspires a memorable account of the title role in "Semiramide" from Ms. Sutherland in this classic recording from 1965-66 of Rossini's greatest serious opera. But the big news at the time was the staggering singing of Ms. Horne in the trouser role of Arsace, a valiant warrior and the tormented son of Semiramide, the conniving queen of Babylon. Though there is a womanly allure in Ms. Horne's sound, the sheer virility of her signing, the fearless leaps and the flawless coloratura runs give the portrayal a heroic cast. It's good to have this re-engineered release available." -The New York Times
