Rossini is said to have defined 'bel canto' as denoting a voice of natural beauty that is even throughout its range, effortless delivery of florid music thanks to diligent training and a deep comprehension of style acquired through years of immersion in the genre. The most beautiful 'bel canto' operas are represented her this collection of recordings from 1955-1971.
