Notes and Editorial Reviews

R E V I E W S

"These classic performances made when della Casa was in her glorious prime, the voice glowing, creamy and ideally produced ... adept at characterization ... reticent yet playful, coquettish yet sincere. (Lieder) famous, trail-blazing version of the Four Last Songs, sung in their written rather than printed order ... Some find della Casa cool, even matter of fact in this music, but I find the soaring, ecstatic tone a thing of continuing joy: composed, steady singing of calm beauty." -- Gramophone
