Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Beethoven concert aria was recorded in 1965 in the wake of a series of successful concerts with the New York Philharmonic. The soprano was then at her peak, and while the electric charge on the recording is not quite as high as at the concerts, this is nonetheless one of the best versions of the aria on disc..." -- Joel Kasow, FANFARE

"Fans of Régine Crespin’s wonderfully distinctive voice need little encouragement to acquire this reissue. The account of Beethoven’s 'Ah! perfido' is a testament to her dramatic ability to command absolute attention from the listener. Essentially the same qualities are displayed in the mélodies... Satie’s ‘Daphénéo’ and Ravel’s ‘Le grillon’ recall
Read more the magical hush of Crespin’s recording of 'Shéhérazade'..." -- Christopher Dingle, BBC Music Magazine
