Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Beatrice liria-Monzon, is the real thing, a full-bodied Mediterranean mezzo; her Carmen is bold and earthy, with thrilling contralto-like tone for such important moments as the "Tra-la-la" replies to her interrogators in Act I. For a quick summing-up, this is a well recorded, authentically French Carmen, conducted with flair by Lombard."

-- Gramophone [10/1995] Reviewing complete recording
