    quote: the guardian 2010
    [Gheorghiu] proves to be heavenly in it from start to finish. Alagna nicely captures Fritz's emotional uncertainties and collapsing self-delusion...and there's marvellous conducting from Alberto Veronesi. It's real feel-good stuff...
    Angela and Alagna.

    What could go wrong?

    I don't miss the by now opaque vocals of Sutherland on the studio La Favorita, Cossotto does just fine.

    Also I can highly recommend the very cheap 1975 version with Shirley Verrett and after that 1955 Fedora Barbieri........

    Purchased under the Decca Eloquence label with the Bluebeards Castle but this original cover as released under the London label is so much nicer and suits the piece.

    Contains some beautiful music. So good, that the next non opera CD I buy is definitely going to be Kodály.

    maybe.

    This was considered draculette's breakout performance to launch her to opera superstar status yet at the time Decca didn't even bother to show her on album cover........

    Early 1960s Sutherland was a marvel to hear technically, unbelievable range with tonal purity........

    1960s RCA era Caballe was her glory days for me, she started out her recording career with a more dramatic bel canto style and later mellowed out much more......the two early recordings above capture that spirited bel canto style with great supporting casts!

    She also has several great RCA recital CDs from this early period......
