Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dubbed "La Stupenda," Joan Sutherland was one of the greatest and most recognizable voices of the twentieth century and her acclaim continues to this day. This superb collection, taken from two 1960 performances in London and Paris, is a sensational follow-up to Alto's earlier release of "Art of the Prima Donna," (ALC 1125).

“One of Sutherland’s outstanding gramophone achievements..." "essential purchase.” -- Penguin Guide Rosette on Art of Prima Donna vol.2

“this 1959 recital at once put her on the map as one of the greatest recording artists of all time” “most cherishable of all operatic recital records” -- Penguin Guide
